YEP at Purg

Tribal youth gather around the Village Plaza at Purgatory Ski Resort during their annual Youth Employment Program (YEP) appreciation day field trip hosted by the Southern Ute Education Department. Each summer the program puts tribal students into positions with SUIT departments to gain work experience and earn paychecks while school is out of session. This year’s YEP appreciation day activities included: Purgatory’s roller-coaster rides, go kart racing, paddle boarding and mini golf.
