Summer P.A.Y.S. (Preparing Area Youth for Success) is CareerSource Pinellas’ signature summer employment and training program, connecting local high school students with local employers to provide a hands-on experience that pays competitive wages in high-demand industries.
This year, SailFuture customized their youth apprenticeship program for students to obtain industry certifications during the paid apprenticeship through Summer P.A.Y.S . The first apprenticeship class graduated Thursday.
Through the year-round P.A.Y.S. program, SailFuture Academy and other Pinellas County employers can team up with CareerSource Pinellas to provide hands-on learning experience for our youth throughout the school year .
