About the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP)
The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is funded by the Office of Temporary Disability and Assistance (OTDA). This program is for resident Sullivan County youth ages 14-21 and lasts 6 weeks throughout July and August.
Youth Participants must apply (applications release April 1st every year). Around the end of May, applicants will receive a call to schedule the in-person interview process. At the interview process, documents will be required by OTDA as there are eligibility requirements.
Each year, there is a variety of sites for employment both inside and outside. Job opportunities include clerical, landscaping, digital marketing, and more! We take your interests into consideration when doing job placements for SYEP.
In 2023, participant survey 100% of participants were happy with job placement!
