When is the application deadline?
All applications must be submitted before March 31st, 2023.
What kind of jobs can I apply for with the YMCA?
If you are accepted into STP 2023, you will receive a link to apply to the YMCA for the summer. All STP participants will work in one of the following positions: Housekeeping, Food Service, Buildings and Grounds (BnG), or Conference Services.
How much money will I make over the summer?
Team Members usually make around $2,000 by the end of the summer. Team Leaders will take home around $1,000 from the summer. There is also the option to stay longer after STP ends to work at the YMCA and make more money.
I have friends/family getting married in the summer. Can I attend their weddings?
Since the program is only around 9 weeks long, we encourage students to leave STP as little as possible. Participants are expected to stay at SMR unless they are in a wedding ceremony, or in the case of a family or medical emergency.
What happens if I drop out of STP after being accepted?
If you drop out before March 31, 2023, we will only keep your deposit
If you drop out after March 31, 2023, we will require half of the STP cost ($800/$250)
If you drop out after May 1, 2023, we will require the total STP cost ($1600/$500)
*Special exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis*
*This policy will be adjusted if COVID restrictions change our plans*
How much is STP going to cost this year?
The cost for Team Leaders is $500, and the cost for Team Members is $1600, which includes a $50 or $150 deposit due when you submit your application.
