Thank you for your interest in the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of concern for the health and safety of all New Yorkers, we have made the difficult decision to not operate SYEP this summer. If you are interested in becoming a new worksite, information will be available early next year. If you are a current SYEP employer, we appreciate your understanding.

What Is SYEP?

Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is the nation’s largest youth employment program, connecting NYC youth between the ages of 14 and 24 with career exploration opportunities and paid work experience each summer.

Participants have the opportunity to explore their interests and career pathways, develop workplace skills and engage in learning experiences that help in developing their social, civic and leadership skills.

By participating in structured projects and work-based opportunities, NYC youth are better prepared for careers of the future.
