Participate in the 2023 Summer Youth Employment Program
We are actively recruiting worksites that can provide opportunities for youth interns from our Direct Placement Program to engage in real-world work experiences in the community.
Several thousand youths apply to SYEP each year. The Direct Placement Internship Program is a subset of SYEP designed to serve youth ages 16+ who demonstrate a higher level of job-readiness than most. Participants are placed in higher-level positions in the public, not-for-profit, or private sectors. Many interns for Direct Placement have already held employment or participated in job-readiness-trainings programs prior to referral.
Interested businesses can complete a Youth Worker Request Form and submit it to Rochester Works! or the City of Rochester using the instructions included in the documents below.
