What moves you?

Have you ever wanted to make a video? Act in a play? Or maybe just find a cool place to do stuff with your friends? The Sprockets Program Finder has tons of after-school activities, summer programs and other fun things for teens and youth to do in Saint Paul. Just enter information about what interests you and the Program Finder will provide a list of activities that match your criteria. If you're looking for job skills, try browsing some programs that will help you gain professional experience, too.

Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter to hear about new opportunities, too, and sign up for the Just for Teens email list!

No car? No problem.

We know sometimes it’s hard to find a way to get to activities and programs. Sprocket is working on lots of new ideas to help you get where you want to go – so keep checking back for more developments. In the meantime, try these ideas:

  • Ride the bus:  The Sprockets Program Finder includes links to help you find the closest bus route to each program location, or use Metro Transit's Trip Planner.

  • Bike or walk: Narrow your Program Finder search to only include activities that are within walking or biking distance of your home or school.

  • After-school busing: If you go to an after-school program every day, ask your parents to contact the school and change your after-school bus stop to the program’s location.

Right Track Program

The Saint Paul Right Track program, formerly known as Youth Job Corps (YJC), provides meaningful work experiences for youth ages 14-21 who are from a low-income family or have a barrier to employment. The Right Track application for summer jobs is available online in February each year.  Still have questions? Email righttrack@ci.stpaul.mn.us, and be sure to stay updated via Facebook and Twitter, too.

For job opportunities outside of the Right Track program, check out the resources below. Many of these positions come and go throughout the year, so check back often or reach out to the organization to find out when they are accepting applications.
