2019 Summer Youth Employment Program Application

The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) offers work experience, teaches valuable employment skills, financial literary and provides you with a summer income. SYEP educational activities will enhance your summer experience, allowing you to develop career awareness, understanding of personal money management, and workrelated social skills.

SYEP: Summer Youth Employment gives students a unique opportunity to explore their interests and discover new ones through various pathways:

Pre-employment Training: Receive help with résumé and cover letter writing, and interviewing skills. Learn essential workplace readiness skills and business etiquette.

Paid Summer Internships: Paid internship opportunities available in a variety of industries to accommodate student interests.

Newark Public Schools (Academic Enrichment): Students in need of summer school or taking part in other district programs will be enrolled in SYEP – no longer forced to decide between financial necessity and credit recovery.

Academic Acceleration: Youth will attend specialized classes at NJIT in coding and architecture and design. SYEP also partners with many year-long youth programs to compensate their participants in the summer.
