Summer Youth Employment Program for Vulnerable Youth

The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) for Vulnerable Youth (VY) provides New York City youth between the ages of 14 and 24 with paid summer employment for up to six weeks in July and August. To be eligible for this component of SYEP youth must be homeless or in temporary housing, in foster care, preventative services and/or juvenile justice involved. Enrollment will remain open until all placements for VY are filled.

In order to enroll a student, school staff or Community School Director must submit a completed application to a VY SYEP provider linked HERE.
