YES is designed to provide 30 high school students with full-time jobs in the city’s summer recreation programs. The eight-week program is aimed at teaching at-risk teens positive work habits and marketable skills. Eligible students will gain meaningful employment experience and also receive mentoring and lessons in financial literacy.
The program’s eligibility requirements for students are:
• Must be a high school student enrolled in school or graduating seniors
• 15 to 18 years of age
• Daytona Beach residents
• Have reliable transportation
• Meet family income criteria

Jon Hall Chevrolet and Brown & Brown Insurance are sponsoring the cost of salaries for the teens.
