What is SYEP Summer Bridge 2020?
As you may know in April, we had to suspend the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). We have spent this time creating an engaging virtual program that will offer opportunities to learn new skills, explore potential careers and earn money this summer and are happy to announce the launch of SYEP Summer Bridge 2020.
What Does the Program Offer?
SYEP Summer Bridge 2020 will give youth a unique opportunity to explore their interest and discover new ones through:
Career Exploration: Flex your research skills and discover new career possibilities.
Skill-Building Activities: Receive help with your resume, cover letters, and interview skills. Learn essential job readiness skills and workplace etiquette.
Connections to Professionals: Build your network through mentoring, career panels, social media workshops, and more
Community Building: Our democracy needs your voice. Learn valuable skills to become an active citizen at work and in your community.
