The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) provides New York City youth with paid summer jobs at worksites including government agencies, hospitals, summer camps, nonprofits, small businesses, law firms, museums, sports enterprises and retailers.
New York City residents ages 14-24 can apply for a spot in the summer job lottery online at www.nyc.gov/dycd through Friday, March 17. Applications may also be completed at a participating community-based organization during the application period.
The application process was launched earlier than usual this year to give New Yorkers additional time to plan for summer. Participants are selected by lottery for the program, which provides employment from July 5 through August 19.
“Every year we give more and more students the chance at an internship that could change the trajectory of their careers,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “Last year tens of thousands of young New Yorkers kick started their futures at more than 10,000 job sites across the City. This year, we’ll connect even more youth from across the five boroughs to meaningful opportunity,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
SYEP, operated by the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD), is the nation’s largest summer youth employment initiative. For more information, call 311 or DYCD Youth Connect (1-800-246-4646).
