The Prince George’s County Youth@Work/Summer Enrichment Program (SYEP) has been one of the County’s signature programs for more than 30 years, and it is with great regret that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 SYEP.
Since mid-March, the County has been forced to make some very difficult decisions as we face the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The uncertainty caused by COVID-19 and how it will impact social distancing guidelines, workplace safety for youth and employees, and worksite availability, factored into the decision to cancel the 2020 SYEP. We are confident that this is the best path forward for the safety of everyone involved in the program.
On behalf of the Office of the County Executive, OHRM, the SYEP team, and our collaborative agencies and partners, we thank you for your interest in the program, and for your understanding at this difficult time. The SYEP will return to provide our youth with opportunities to grow, to offer our businesses with a strong seasonal workforce, and to make our community Prince George’s Proud.
