Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP)

The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) provides youth with valuable work experience during the summer.  Participants work in sectors such as childcare, health services and offices within public, private and government agencies.  SYEP participants are actively involved in learning day-to-day skills of entry level work including tutoring, supporting classrooms activities and general administrative duties.

SYEP also provides workshops on job readiness, career exploration, financial literacy and opportunities to continue education and social growth. Youth can apply for the program online or at a community-based organization during the application period.  Participants are selected by lottery for the program.

SYEP is active during the months of July-August.
