YOMBA SHOSHONE TRIBE
Summer Youth Employment Program
The Yomba Shoshone Tribe is an equal opportunity provider.
Every summer, the tribe offers a Summer Youth Employment Program for ages 14-18 years old funded by Barrick Goldstrike. During the SYEP, the youth do a lot of gardening in our community garden as well as weeding for elders, cleaning of tribal buildings and many other projects. This program is very important for our youth because it is intended to help them gain a good work ethic, as well as learn how to apply, interview, and maintain a job. Any suggestions on how to make our SYEP a successful one would be greatly appreciated. We are always looking for volunteers to come and teach our youth new skills. Any questions or suggestions about the SYEP can be directed to Samantha Gentry at (775) 964- 2463
