The Y’s Summer Youth Employment Program for Older Youth (SYEP OY) is a New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) program that connects New York City youth between the ages of 16–21 with career exploration opportunities and paid work experiences each summer.
Every year, the Y welcomes more than 700 youth to benefit from workforce development programs that offer hands-on exposure, paid internships, work experience, access to jobs skills training, and opportunities to develop social, civic, and leadership skills.
The goals and objectives of SYEP Older Youth are to:
The SYEP Older Youth model a six-week career learning experience. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some placements will occur in-person while others will be remote. Participants will have worksite monitors assigned to them to ensure they are provided with support throughout the summer and process their timesheets/timecards, evaluations, and surveys.
Stipends: The SYEP Older Youth participants will be paid $15 an hour for 25 hours a week.
