Work with youth

At the Valley Youth Centers, we strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for youth ages 5 and up in west Duluth. Our after school and summer programs are designed to provide tutoring and mentoring to help youth with homework, leadership and recreational activities to strengthen their physical health.


We are seeking hardworking and passionate individuals to help with programs of all sizes at the Valley Youth Centers. We hope you will join us on an ongoing basis and become part of the VYC team. 

We partner with the Duluth Workforce Development Department, Youth Employment Services, and work study programs at local colleges. Please fill out their application form and include "Valley Youth Center" as the "referral name." Then, our partners will follow up to discuss opportunities that may be right for you.
