Each summer, thousands of New York City young people, ages 14 to 24, get a job opportunity through the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). The application is now available. We strongly encourage District 8 youth to apply, and we hope you will share this information with your family, friends and neighbors.
SYEP is a City program that places young people in summer jobs in a variety of sectors, including government, nonprofits, summer camps, cultural institutions, small businesses, law firms and others. Participants are chosen by lottery.
In this seven week program, young people have the opportunity to gain skills and work experience, while also making some money.
