YEP Program Information

The Youth Employment in Parks Program is a program of the Anchorage Parks & Recreation Department and the Anchorage Park Foundation. The goal of the YEP program is to positively engage a new generation of diverse youth leaders with the environment and the Anchorage community through meaningful training, employment, and outdoor recreation.

YEP seeks to:

  • Create a meaningful "first job" experience and career pathway for diverse youth to work in the outdoors and natural resources fields.
  • Expose youth to the outdoors and connect them with nature to support healthy lifestyles.
  • Provide youth with community action skills and character development so they may become effective citizens.
  • Improve community through enhanced recreation opportunities, parks and public spaces.
