Ignore all the snow on the ground! It's time to start thinking about the summer!

If you are a D.C. youth interested in participating in the 2014 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP), then listen up. Registration opens up on Friday, Jan. 24 at 12:15 p.m., so grab your library card and head over to Mt. Pleasant Library (or any library!) right after school to sign up with our computers.

Check out summerjobs.dc.gov for all the information you will need. SYEP is open to youth between the ages of 14 and 21, who live in the District of Columbia, have a social security number and permission to work in the US.

Remember the library is a great place to work, so consider it as a location for YOUR summer job in 2014!  Here are some helpful resources related to teens and employment:
