The City of Simi Valley provides the Youth Employment Service at no cost to assist youths in finding employment, as well as to assist employers in reaching the youth candidates they want to hire.

Employers will be asked to provide details on the position, such as job duties, hiring requirements and candidate referral instructions.

Job leads will be shared with YES clients until the employer closes the job posting.
