The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is a summer opportunity for youth ages 14-21 who are interested in learning new skills, working in intern positions throughout Pima County and attending summer school to help youth advance in secondary education.

Summer Youth
Although we cannot recommend or endorse specific programs, we encourage you to research and take advantage of the many summer programs for youth and teens offered by local public entities, not profit and community-based organizations


Are you interested in being a worksite for youth?

The summer program partners with local area business and other organizations to place youth participants at a workplace to help youth prepare for future employment and assist employers throughout the summer months. Worksite supervisors attend an orientation regarding time management, applicable child labor laws and more. Youth are employed by the program and paid a hourly wage. If your organization is interested in participating and helping us prepare youth for future employment please complete the worksite request form or call the Youth Center at (520) 724-9649.
