2024 Summer Youth Employment Program is Open
NYC’s Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is the nation’s largest youth employment program, in which teens and young adults between 14 and 24 living in NYC can obtain career exploration opportunities for their future and work experience over the summer. Teens and young adults will be able to discover and explore new interests!
Hurry! The deadline to apply is Friday, March 1, 2024!
“This effort to offer a higher number of opportunities in the Summer Youth Employment Program will help foster independence, education, and leadership among youth across Staten Island and the city,” said Vito Fossella, Staten Island borough president. “I support Mayor Adams’ initiatives to keep our youth actively engaged during the summer months. This should give more kids opportunities to gain work experience and make a few extra dollars in the process.”
The program provides NYC youth with paid summer employment. Participants work in a variety of entry-level jobs where they can explore different interests and career pathways, develop productive workplace habits, and engage in learning experiences that strengthen their social, civic, and leadership skills. Get paid to participate!
