Get Paid While You Learn

Looking for a summer job? There are two exciting ways for young NYCHA residents to earn money while gaining important career skills through the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP).

NYCHA SYEP for 14- and 15-year-olds

Apply for NYCHA’s Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP), a lottery-based program that provides minimum wage ($13/hr.) summer work assignments to residents ages 14 and 15. Work at NYCHA or NYCHA-partner locations doing clerical, customer service, janitorial, service learning support roles tasks, and more. In addition to a 15-hour work week, you’ll participate in five hours of career exploration and development workshops each week. You’ll get paid while you learn!

Apply online at http://www1.nyc.gov/site/dycd/index.page and select NYCHA as your worksite provider.

SYEP Guaranteed Spots for residents 14 to 24 who live at MAP developments

As part of the Mayor’s Action Plan for Neighborhood Safety (MAP), 14- to 24-year-old residents from 15 developments are guaranteed summer work assignments through SYEP. If you live at Boulevard, Brownsville, Butler, Bushwick, Castle Hill, Ingersoll, Patterson, Polo Grounds Towers, Queensbridge, Red Hook, Saint Nicholas, Stapleton, Tompkins, Van Dyke, or Wagner, apply today!

Apply online at http://www1.nyc.gov/site/dycd/index.page.

The SYEP application is available from February to March 16, 2018. For more information about SYEP, call DYCD Youth Connect at 1-800-246-4646.
