Thank you for your interest in working at FSBC!
Each summer, Fry’s Spring Beach Club (FSBC) employs over 100 youth, ages 14 and up, as lifeguards, café workers, camp counselors, swim coaches, and grounds crew. For most of the staff, FSBC provides them with their first job, their first real set of responsibilities, and their first paycheck. While a first job can be a daunting or lackluster experience, it can also be an extremely positive and empowering one. Our goal is to achieve the latter for staff working at FSBC.
Through the Teen Employment and Outreach Program (TEOP), FSBC will provide teenage staff with the tools and opportunities needed to develop social-emotional and leadership skills while gaining valuable work experience. We promote healthy relationships and community connections and foster confidence and a strong work ethic. Our goal is not only for teenagers to succeed in their jobs at FSBC, but also to develop into thriving, successful young adults.
Community outreach is a significant part of TEOP. It is of paramount importance to FSBC that teenagers from all backgrounds have the opportunity to participate, especially those that have historically been denied opportunities. As FSBC strives to be an inclusive community, we work to ensure that the staff is a reflection of this priority. We would like all staff to appreciate and learn to work alongside teens of various backgrounds. FSBC’s outreach efforts are outlined below.
