The race is on to secure a summer job

Today at 3:15 pm young people ages 14 to 21 will be applying for a job through the 2012 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP).   There is currently local funding to support 12,000 in the program.

Young people can access the application by visiting www.summerjobs.dc.gov.   Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis and all applications must be received by February 17 in order to be considered.

SYEP will officially kick off today from 3:15 pm until 12:00 midnight at DOES HQ (4058 Minnesota Ave NE).   Mayor Gray will participate and DOES staff will be on hand all night to assist youth and their families, and to answer any questions.
