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.
