Seattle Youth Employment Program application -Deadline September 30th

The Seattle Youth Employment Program (SYEP) ( more info here) supports young people (ages 16 to 24) from qualifying-income households and communities that experience racial, social, and economic disparities. The goal is to increase youth and young adults’ ability to pursue careers that pay well and are meaningful to them.

SYEP has two components: a school-year exploration and learning experience, and a summer internship.

  • During the  school-year  program (three quarters: fall, winter, and spring), participants identify professional interests, gain marketable skills, are exposed to various career fields, and build their social network.
  • The  summer internship  places young people in work settings to apply their knowledge, gain hands-on experience, develop professional connections, and build their resume.

Paid Young Adult opportunity at the YMCA Social Impact Center!

The Accelerator YMCA Employment and Training team is excited to announce a new pilot program: The “Young Adult Grant Advisory Committee!” 

We will be creating a committee of approximately 5-10 young adults (ages 18-26) who have experienced housing instability at some time in their lives and who are passionate about/interested in participating in their local community.  Applicants should live in King County. The committee members will receive coaching about the grant making process and then they will use this learning to collectively disburse a sizable amount in grant money (several tens of thousands of dollars) to organizations across King County who are helping to tackle housing issues.  Employment and Training staff will be teaching and facilitating the group but the young people of the committee will be the drivers of this grant and the decision making process that follows.  The committee will meet 1-2 times a month, for around 2 hours each session; participants will be paid $20/hour for participation.

We will be conducting interviews in mid-September!

If you know anyone that might be eligible and interested, please encourage them to applyASAP!
Please also share this with any other organizations that you think might find this interesting (e.g. shelters, colleges, etc.).
