2013 Youth Opportunity Program (YOP)
SLAC YOUTH OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM
Thank you for your interest in the Youth Opportunity Summer Employment Program at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
What is YOP?
The SLAC Youth Opportunity Program is a 10-week employment program designed primarily to provide supplementary income, and also to give entry-level students exposure to the work place while allowing them the opportunity to enhance their job skills. Students between the ages of 18-22 whose total family income does not exceed a predetermined amount may apply. Since these jobs are full time, we are not able to accommodate students enrolled in summer school or other activities.
What kinds of positions are available?
In the past, the positions have included unskilled labor, data entry, light industrial, maintenance and clerical positions. Students must be 18 years old and will work in accordance with specific safety requirements.
What is the selection process?
Applications must be received before May 31, 2013. You will be contacted directly by the SLAC Diversity Office.
The Outreach Financial statement must be completed by a parent or guardian, in addition to the application. A copy of your parents’ 2012 W2 forms or 1040 forms are required. As an alternative, they may also provide proof of public assistance or disability.
To apply, please print and complete the forms below. Provide as many details as possible about your skills, experience, and interests. This year, we have a very limited number of summer student jobs for college students or high school students, so please apply as soon as possible. You can mail or fax the application packet to:
