COLORADO SPRINGS — On Friday, the City of Colorado Springs announced their partnership with the El Pomar Foundation to expand summer employment opportunities.

With an additional $80,000 in grant funding provided by the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services department, 24 additional seasonal staffing positions will be available to support summer camp, sports programs, and assist facility workers.

“The City of Colorado Springs is excited to offer these positions and thankful to El Pomar’s trustees for their support of our programs and facilities,” said Karen Palus, Parks director. “Realizing how COVID-19 has drastically changed opportunities for summer employment, this funding allows the City to continue to offer positions that build park stewardship and engage with our camp participants.”

El Pomar Foundation President and CEO Kyle Hybl adds that the focus has shifted from crisis response to recovery, and El Pomar's Trustees are grateful to be able to aid in this time of need by funding for more seasonal jobs in the Pikes Peak region.
