WE WANT YOU! 
Click here for this year’s application.

The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is an award-winning program that provides more than 100 low-income teenagers (ages 15-19) with leadership development, life skills training, and career and college exploration. Each participant earns a stipend while working at a local business that aligns with their career track.

All applications must be submitted online. Applicants may use the W-S Urban League downtown or Patterson computer labs (open 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday) to complete and submit applications. Applications are due Friday, May 10th by 5pm.

We have included last year’s income requirements for reference and will update the income requirements when as soon as they are publicized.
