Dropped Contracts

At the discretion of the hiring committee, EFY staff may be subject to a $50 fee for each contract dropped within 14 days of session start date.

Peak Time Availability

Applicants must be able to work for 3–9 weeks, specifically during peak weeks of the EFY summer (June 19–July 29).


EFY-BYU Employment

  •  EFY is owned and operated by Brigham Young University with its principal place of business in Provo, Utah. Accordingly, all EFY counselors are interviewed, hired, and trained in the state of Utah.
  • EFY counselors report to work in Provo, Utah, at their own expense and should expect to work primarily at sessions located inside the state of Utah. Counselors who are also assigned to work at sessions outside of Utah travel from Utah and return to Utah after their out-of-state assignment is complete, at EFY’s expense.
  •  Because EFY is a Utah employer, wages and taxes are primarily reported as Utah wages, and taxes are withheld to Utah. However, some states in which EFY holds sessions require EFY to report wages and withhold taxes to those states, so counselors working sessions in those states will receive a W2 reporting wages earned in and taxes paid to those states in addition to Utah.

EFY Availability and Assignment Policies

Upon being hired, counselors notify EFY which weeks they are available to work and commit to make themselves available to work those weeks. Counselors are then assigned specific sessions based on availability and the needs of EFY.

  • Counselors are not guaranteed to work every week they make themselves available or in locations of their preference. Although employment is “at-will,” once counselors accept assigned sessions, they do so with the intention of working all assigned sessions so that EFY can plan to adequately staff all sessions.
  • Any changes in availability must be communicated to EFY as soon as possible so that EFY can make arrangements to adequately staff each session.
  • Counselors who do not accept or who decline assignments in the state of Utah risk losing out-of-state assignments. Any costs associated with flights booked for out-of-state sessions would become the responsibility of the counselor.
