The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) 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. SYEP also provides workshops on job readiness, career exploration, financial literacy and opportunities to continue education and social growth.

Programs are located in community-based organizations in all five boroughs of New York City. Youth can apply for the program online or at a community-based organization during the application period.  An application package and poster are also available to share with families. Participants are selected by lottery for the program.
