Your Organization Can Become a Summer Youth Employment Program Worksite

The New York City Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) was created in 1996 to provide the City of New York with high-quality youth and family programming, including the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). The program provides New York City youth between the ages of 14 and 24 with paid summer employment for up to six weeks in July and August.

Participants work in a variety of entry-level jobs, including government agencies, hospitals, summer camps, non-profits, small businesses, law firms, museums, and retail organizations. SYEP youth are allowed to work up to 25 hours a week, and are paid NYS minimum wage by the DYCD SYEP. 

Your business or organization can become a SYEP Worksite. Over 6,500 employers are provided with interns and entry-level employees through the program. You must agree to provide productive and meaningful work assignments, provide training and supervision, and provide adequate feedback and mentoring. The deadline to apply to be an SYEP Worksite is Friday, May 13, 2016.
