The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) places high school-aged youth in subsidized and monitored positions in the community. Youth are encouraged to complete their high school education while developing employability and leadership skills.
Our SYEP program provides services on job readiness skills, resume writing, dress for success, role model, connection to internships, and learning work norms and culture to school-based youth ages 14 to 24. SYEP also provides services to vulnerable youth who are challenged and have barriers to work, and to youth who are involved in the foster care system, homeless or runaway youth, or justice-involved.
The SYEP participants gain the opportunities to grow and build upon their strengths while receiving the essential support from SYEP.
