Youth Opportunity Program (YOP)
What is the Youth Opportunity Program (YOP)?
The SLAC Youth Opportunity Program is a ten week employment program
(from June 16 to August 22, 2014) designed primarily to provide

the workplace 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.
