Summer Youth Employment Program

Program Description

Kaiser Permanente's Summer Youth Employment Program provides underserved or at-risk high school students with supportive and meaningful employment experiences in the health care field.  Also known as  L.A.U.N.C.H. (Learn About Unlimited New Careers in Healthcare), participants attend educational sessions and motivational workshops that introduce them to the possibilities of pursuing a career in health care.  Many former program participants are now employed at Kaiser Permanente as nurses, department administrators, lab technicians, opticians and engineers.
