County Executive, Rushern L. Baker, III is proud to announce the Summer Youth Enrichment Program (SYEP)! This countywide initiative connects youth to summer jobs and training programs being offered throughout the County. Youth will have opportunities to learn new job skills, learn about career tracks, develop their resumes and earn money through a meaningful work experience.
SYEP also provides workshops on job readiness, career exploration, financial literacy and opportunities to continue education and social growth.
Residents of Prince George’s County between the ages of 15 – 19 as of the program start date are eligible to apply. Youth must be eligible to work in the United States and may need a work permit prior to hire.
The application acceptance period starts late February and are posted on the County’s employment site. Applications are only accepted through the on-line hiring process during the acceptance period. Youth must set up an email account to apply for positions and receive information concerning the selection process. A job coach is available to guide youth through this process.
