Acceptance as an employee of the YMCA of the Rockies - Estes Park Center (EPC) is mandatory for participation in the Estes Park LT program. It is your sole responsibility to secure my own employment for Estes Park LT and that this is not a responsibility of Reliant, its employees, or Program Directors. LT participants are expected to be good examples of leadership in the workplace and employment during the project. Involuntary termination or being fired from employment while at LT could result in the immediate dismissal from the LT program.
HOW DOES EMPLOYMENT WITH EPLT WORK?
The YMCA of the Rockies - Estes Park Center employs all of our participants and houses them in their dorms. Compensation includes food and housing plus approximately $220 per week ($5.50 hourly) in additional wages for 40 hours of work. Every worker is guaranteed at least 40 hours per week.
IS IT MANDATORY THAT PARTICIPANTS WORK FULL-TIME? WHY?
As part of the LT program, and as part of your employment agreement with the YMCA, each participant is required to work a full-time job.The reason for this is to provide an environment for meeting and building natural relationships - important for developing the skills you'll be learning this summer. Obviously, most participants will need to earn an income to help pay for LT, school, and personal expenses. Your job at the YMCA also secures and provides your food and housing for the summer.
DOES LET GUARANTEE EMPLOYMENT FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS?
Reliant cannot guarantee anyone a job for the summer. Your participation in the Estes Park LT requires that you apply for and receive employment for the YMCA of the Rockies - Estes Park Center. Your hiring is completely up to the YMCA.
