SYEP — Employer Application

The Dannon Project Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) provides over 65 employers with entry-level employees. Youth work up to 30 hours per week for eight weeks with the goal of building on their individual strengths and incorporating youth development principles. These principles include engaging the talents and interests of youth, developing their skills and competencies, and providing positive adult role models. SYEP participants are typically Jefferson County residents between the ages of 16 and 21 and are enthusiastic about not just earning some money this summer but building their resumes with good work experience. As an SYEP worksite, you agree to:

  • Provide productive and meaningful work assignments
  • Provide training and supervision
  • Communicate regularly with TDP to ensure that accurate compensation for hours worked
  • Evaluate your participants and provide adequate feedback and mentoring

We are always looking for partners that offer work opportunities to our diverse youth population. We hope that you can become one of our partners by hosting one or more of our interns.
