The Office of Economic and Workforce Development announces its 2010 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). SYEP offers paid work experiences for youth ages 17-24 who live in San Francisco. Youth will be placed at public, non-profit or private organizations where they will gain hands-on experience in a variety of careers and industries. Through partnerships with six community based organizations, youth will also receive paid work readiness training where participants will have opportunities to develop the skills necessary for entering today’s workforce.
SYEP program dates are from June 14, 2010 through August 9, 2010.
Applications for SYEP are available NOW at www.hiresfyouth.com/syep. To submit an application, youth must call an SYEP certifying agency for an appointment. Certifying agency information is located in the application packet. The application deadline is Friday, May 28, 2010. Positions are limited, so encourage any interested youth to apply as soon as possible.
