Get a headstart on careers with YE University.

New for the 2019-2020 school year, Youthentity introduces the Career Academy & YE University pilot program in partnership with the Roaring Fork School District. Career Academy is an exciting opportunity for kids to receive school credit.

A full year program, students choose between two tracks: Structure Design & The Building Industry and Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management. Meeting during school hours, both programs count toward graduation and are excellent for resumes and college applications.

In tandem with hands-on learning, students will gain access to YE University, an online learning platform which teaches the basics of workplace communication and behaviors, interviewing, how to write effective resumes and cover letters, and other professional skills to give students an edge in entering the workforce.

Youthentity Career Academy expands upon Youthentity's past high school career development programs for a more robust career exploration and readiness program. For our pilot program, we will focus on two industries: Architectural Design & Construction, and Culinary Arts & Hospitality.
