Youth Employment Program

What is YEP?

The Youth Employment Program (YEP) provides a range of services to assist and support young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are looking for work, completing high school or considering further education.

If you’re completing Year 12, are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and aren’t sure what to do after you finish school, YEP can help you.

The Queensland Government’s Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships (DATSIP) is responsible for running the program.
