The application deadline for the Mayor’s Youth Academy (MYA) summer youth employment with Kings Dominion has been extended to 5 p.m. Friday, February 27. Applications are available at or youth may apply in person at the MYA headquarters, 701 North 25th Street, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. No applications will be accepted after 5 p.m. on February 27. Applicants to this program are required to participate in pre-employment training sessions prior to being referred to Kings Dominion staff for interviews and placements.

The City of Richmond Mayor’s Youth Academy will partner with Kings Dominion for a third consecutive year in providing city youth ages 16-19 the opportunity to work at the amusement park this summer. Kings Dominion’s commitment to hiring MYA participants is significant in allowing Richmond youth an unprecedented opportunity for summer employment. Selected MYA participants will begin working varying schedules in June and continue throughout the summer months.

Transportation is essential to the success of this partnership in order for youth to access the employment opportunities with Kings Dominion. Mobility was noted as the top reason why Richmond youth have been unable to pursue summer employment with Kings Dominion in the past. GRTC has confirmed that it will again operate its Kings Dominion shuttle services that will allow MYA youth to have a reliable source of transportation. This collaboration has been very successful and has the potential of connecting more Richmond residents with the park for employment opportunities.

“I am pleased with our ongoing partnership with Kings Dominion as we continue to invest in the futures of our city’s youth. Kings Dominion’s commitment to again hire 100 MYA participants provides Richmond youth with a tremendous opportunity for summer employment,” said Mayor Dwight C. Jones. “The collaboration between MYA, Kings Dominion and GRTC permits Richmond youth to develop relationships with international youth, gain valuable work experience while earning income to save or spend in the local economy. The experience can also lead to the potential for full-time careers with the park.”

Applications for all other MYA Summer Programs including; MYA Jr., Life Stage, CIT, and Work Experience Internships will be available on March 1.
