Summer Youth Employment in New York City

Bronx | Brooklyn | Manhattan | Queens | Staten Island

NYC Department of Youth and Community Development

This summer roughly 700 SYEP participants worked at over 150 NYPD units across the five boroughs. The NYC Department of Youth and Community Development visited with participants Ayden & Pryce at the NYPD Mounted Unit to hear about their SYEP summer experience! SYEP Interns have a range of responsibilities in their roles, but their favorite part of this summer is spending time with the horses in the on site stables. 

Additionally, the NYPD supported younger youth with project-based learning which included financial literacy and community building workshops. NYC youth were able to explore the pipeline of diverse opportunities within the largest police force in the country. Financial empowerment & youth employment is not only possible, but essential.
