Youth Employment Program

But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today. –Deuteronomy 8:18(NIV)

The purpose of the this program is to support initial work experience for SAYM students 15-18 years of age.

Many of the SAYM male and female students desire to work to earn money and to gain work experience. Our plan is to budget $7,000 and work with churches and sister ministries in and around our footprint who would (a) use our students for work projects such as general cleaning, grounds clean up and painting or (b) church office work or day care assistants.

SAYM will pay an hourly wage of $8.00/hr on a bi-monthly basis based on time card which the church operations personnel complete and submit to SAYM. The students will work 8-10 hours per week per week during a six month training program. Taxes and workman’s compensation will be paid by SAYM on the wages paid to the student. No benefits beyond wages will be paid.

The bi-monthly time card will state where the students worked, what jobs were performed, and document student attitude, timeliness, and assessment of job performed. This will hopefully allow a work performance review to be coupled with church or community facility operations person’s letter of reference, as well as a SAYM certificate of completion of the YEP for the student to utilize to secure permanent part time work.

The students selected for the work program will attend a one hour orientation training module and six additional training modules about once per month. The training module focus’ are as follows:

  • Personal Finance
  • Anger Mgt. and Conflict Resolution(two parts)
  • Team Building
  • My Career
  • Job Hunt Skills

SAYM will provide a mentor contact with each church as a liaison to assist in insuring the student is punctual and performs their duties up to and beyond expectations.

The purpose of this program is as follows:

  • Provide an opportunity for valuable work experience.
  • Allow our YEP students to earn money and learn how to handle money.
  • Expand SAYM involvement in our mission field.
  • Develop relationship between SAYM and mission field churches and community groups.
  • Develop relationship between our students and church/community group personnel where they work, which will hopefully develop a sense of community for our students as well as add another mentor in their lives.
  • Establish a proven work support program which may enable SAYM to secure grants to expand the program next year.
