Open Enrollment for Engineering & Construction Company Career Internship Program

Spend enough time around kids and you’ll believe that there’s hope for the world. Spend enough time around YouthEntity, and you may believe it transcends being about kids and becomes more of a template for how it would be nice to see entire communities function.

At YouthEntity, our youth are job ready, career ready and life ready.

While we create and innovate locally, our programs address national needs that help our youth participants build their self-confidence and an authentic source of hope for their futures.


Our goal is to make the Western Slope of Colorado the most financially literate region in the country. We hope that every young person in the communities we serve enters adulthood financially literate, with applicable work experience through our career development programs. 


YouthEntity engages and empowers youth to discover their potential by providing real-world learning experiences that prepare them for future success. 

Our Journey:

We started our journey into experiential learning in 2006 with our first “Build Your Own” peer workshop where students taught other students how to build their own desktop computer.  Today, we provide real world learning experiences to youth to help prepare them for future success no matter what they want to be when they grow up.  Youth in our programs develop financial knowledge, cultivate career readiness and employability skills and gain social capital.  Our programs combine learning with practical, real world application – from youth competing in an architectural design proposal to performing a wellness exam on a volunteer patient – and engage students in a unique way.
