2014 Summer Youth Employment Program Closing Ceremony
The 2014 Summer Youth Employment Program will end on Friday, August 8, 2014, culminating in a closeout ceremony to honor and celebrate outstanding youth participants.
The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is a locally funded initiative sponsored by the Department of Employment Services (DOES) that provides District youth ages 14 to 21 with enriching and constructive summer work experiences through subsidized placements in the private and government sectors. Though SYEP is a short-term employment and training program, our goal is to introduce our youth to employers who will positively impact their futures.
