The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is a government-funded program, operated by RochesterWorks in collaboration with the City of Rochester’s Summer of Opportunity Program (SOOP), which provides youth with six weeks of paid work experience through work sites and programs all across Monroe County. 

In 2023, 696 youth were given the opportunity to gain work experience, meet people, and learn new skills through these programs. 

For more information or questions please contact us.

The Summer Jobs Roadmap lays out the timeline for SYEP/SOOP from initial application in February through program completion in July or August.
