SYEP Applications are Available Now!

The 2019 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) provides New York City youth with paid summer employment for up to six weeks in July and August, and workshops on job readiness, career exploration, financial literacy, and opportunities to continue education and social growth. This year we've made some changes to the program: teens 14 - 15 take part in project-based activities that help them explore different careers while young adults aged 16 - 24 can work in a variety of industries throughout the City.
