09 Mar YouthWorks 2016 Summer Youth Earn & Learn Employment Application
YouthWorks, a program of the WorkPlace, is accepting online applications for the 2016 Summer Youth Earn & Learn Employment Program (SYELP). Youth may begin applying today. Online applications are available by visiting www.workplace.org. Applications will be accepted until April 8, 2016 at 4pm EST. Applications are only accepted online. No in-person or paper applications will be accepted.
We anticipate instituting a lottery due to high demand and limited slots. Federal guidelines and eligibility requirements must be met in order for a youth to participate in the program. Eligible applicants who are randomly selected are required to interview with WorkPlace staff and submit all required documents.
The program is design to give youth and young adults (ages 14-24) meaningful work experience while earning an income. The program is operated for 7 weeks between July and August.
Please contact YouthWorks at 203-416-8487 if you have any questions.
