Resources for our Youth
Student Financial Assistance
Students must be enrolled full time (12+ credit hours) or part time (less than 12 credit hours) and be a registered voter of the Chinle Chapter. If the student is under 18 years old, the student’s parent must be a current registered voter with the Chinle Chapter. Contact the Chapter Administration Office for details about the application process.
Summer Youth Employment
The Summer Youth Employment Program provides our community’s youth the opportunity to gain valuable work experience through temporary employment and on-the-job training. Youth are placed at work sites around the community where they learn about careers and develop new skills.
Each summer, students are encouraged to apply for the program. Students must be registered voters of Chinle Chapter or have a parent that is a current registered voter of Chinle Chapter if the student is under 18 years old. Contact the Chapter Administration Office for details about the application process.
Youth in Parks
The National Park Service offers a volunteer program for youth to gain experience by providing valuable services for the park. Youth can volunteer their time and talent to gain real work experience.
Canyon de Chelly National Monument seeks volunteers to help with maintenance projects, to help visitors at the park, or to help with field work. During the summer, the park recruits high school students for the Student Conservation Association (SCA) Native American Crew who work, cook and camp in the canyon for 4 to 6 weeks.
