Yesterday, the NYC Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) started accepting applications for the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP).
SYEP provides youth between the ages of 14-24 with paid summer employment and job readiness training for up to 6 weeks in July and August. The deadline to submit applications is April 10, 2015.
Programs are located in community-based organizations across the five boroughs and participants are selected by lottery. DYCD also offers specialized programming for disabled, foster care, runaway/homeless and court-involved youth.
I would appreciate it if you would help me spread the word about this important program and encourage youth and their families to apply.
Youth can apply for the program online
or at a community-based organization during the application period.
For Community-Based Organizations:
Community-based organizations interested in becoming a SYEP provider or worksite can apply online here
Additional information about SYEP, including applications and flyers, can be found on DYCD’s website at www.nyc.gov/dycd
