SYEP Employment Placement Update – June 21, 2019

The Summer Youth Enrichment Program (SYEP) is still placing eligible youth into all available positions. With over 10,000 young people applying, we are working to ensure that we secure placements for as many as possible.

Notifications have been sent to youth who have declined or have not responded to placement requests from the SYEP Office or placement site.  If an individual declined a position and would like to continue being considered for placement, the SYEP team will add the individual back into the pool for consideration; however, they will be considered after all eligible youth have received an initial offer of employment.

Youth that have not been assigned placement will receive a notification that they were not selected for this program year; however, as additional placement sites become available, due to declines or new sites, some youth may receive a notification of an opportunity.
