SYEP helps NYC youth ages 14–24 with career exploration opportunities and paid work experiences.
Young New Yorkers can get paid during the summer to explore their interests and career pathways, develop workplace skills, and engage in learning experiences. Participants will develop social, civic, and leadership skills through their work-experience program.
You are eligible to apply if you:
- Live in NYC
- Are between the ages of 14 and 24 years old
- Legally allowed to work in the US
Young adults, ages 22-24, who face employment barriers or reside in NYCHA development may be eligible for special programming. Visit the SYEP website to learn more.
Apply by May 6, 2022. Participants are selected by lottery for the program.
