Washington, DC is not only the capital of the United States - it’s also a talent capital, filled with young people who have the potential to become industry and community leaders and impact our local and global economy.
DC’s Mayor Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) provides enriching summer work experiences to local young people through subsidized placements in the private, nonprofit, school, and government sectors. Building on its 35 year history, in 2017, SYEP received more than 22,000 applications from young people. And in today’s global economy, we hope to serve even more.
With support from Mayor Muriel Bowser and the DC Department of Employment Services, DC Talent Leaders calls upon DC businesses to increase the number and quality of summer work experiences available for young people in our city.
DC Talent Leaders serves as meaningful and inclusive platform to cultivate the future workforce of our city. We invite local employers to partner with DOES and the Mayor’s Office to host local interns for summer work experiences, or to offer free benefits to your existing summer interns.
