The Youth@Work/Summer Youth Enrichment Program

The Prince George’s County Youth@Work/Summer Youth Enrichment Program (Youth@Work/SYEP) is an award-winning, nationally-recognized program that helps young people launch careers by providing them with free job readiness training and paid employment at government, nonprofit, and business worksites in Prince George’s County and the greater Washington, DC area Youth@Work offers youth ages 18-22 opportunities to apply for permanent and temporary jobs that begin prior to the summer, while SYEP offers youth ages 14-22 six weeks of enriching entry-level summer employment.

Youth@Work/SYEP is part of County Executive Angela Alsobrooks’ commitment to youth development, which will prepare and empower the county’s youth to achieve their full potential into adulthood. 

Every experience has value. No matter what the assignment is this summer, grasp it and make the most of that experience. Every experience counts. Give it your best. Be Prince George’s County Proud. All the way.

- The Honorable Angela Alsobrooks, County Executive
