Applications Open for Prince George’s County’s Youth Summer Jobs Program

Applications are open for the 2020 Youth@Work/Summer Youth Enrichment Program in Prince George’s County. The deadline to sign up is Feb. 28.

The award-winning, nationally recognized summer jobs program, which helps youths ages 14 to 22 launch careers with job readiness training and paid summer employment, also provides people ages 18 to 22 with opportunities that may lead to full-time employment and a career.

“One of the proud priorities for our administration is youth development, so we will continue investing resources into this critical program,” said Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. “SYEP provides opportunities for our young people to have enriching summer work experiences, preparing them with the workforce skills necessary to succeed in future careers.”

This year, SYEP is working to place as many young people in jobs as possible by increasing the number of private-sector partners. These partnerships will allow some participating youth to receive employment offers even sooner than the formal start of the program this summer.

While last year’s program broke several records, SYEP has also introduced capstone programs for youth ages 14 to 15, providing job readiness training and career exploration in areas such as cybersecurity, culinary/hospitality, and energy. Previously in 2018, SYEP was recognized with an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties.

Young people interested in applying should do so online at youthatwork.mypgc.us. To be eligible to apply, youth must be a resident of Prince George’s County and age 14 to 22 as of July 1.
