Teens! Get Ready for SYEP
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 2015 Mayor Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP), then listen up. Registration opens up on Friday, Jan. 30 at 12 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. Additional requirements will be posted on the SYEP website.
Remember the library is a great place to work, so consider it as a location for YOUR summer job in 2015! Here are some helpful resources related to teens and employment:
