Youth Summer Employment Program (YSEP) The Youth Summer Employment Program (YSEP) provides subsidized employment opportunities for low-income high school-age youth each year. YSEP offers eight weeks of paid part-time (20-30 hours) work experience at non-profit and public agencies throughout the community in conjunction with job skills workshops, career exploration, and development opportunities.
The goal of the program is to support the positive development of youth by engaging them in meaningful employment, career exploration, leadership, and community involvement opportunities. YSEP is designed to create a supportive learning environment for all participants. Students come away with an understanding of the direct link between academic achievement and future career aspirations, the necessary skills needed to find and keep a job, and the value of giving back to their community through service learning projects.
