2013-Summer Youth Employment

The City of Glen Cove Youth Bureau is proud to announce the launch of our 2013 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP)!  For over 30 years, the Youth Bureau has provided summer employment and training to our youth ages 14-18.

Our two Green Teams are led by past program participants, Erika Ali and Albert Thurmond.  They have been painting fire hydrants with the Water Department, cleaning Mill Pond with the Beautification Commission, working in the City’s Community Garden, maintaining the trails at Garvies Point Museum, assisting the Custodial Staff at Glen Cove High School, and folding clothes and organizing displays with the North Country Reform Temple for their annual yard sale.

We have also been able to provide 13 paid Summer Internships for our 16-18 year olds.  To enrich the overall worker, our rigorous training program includes a health and wellness component in conjunction with job readiness skills training.  After four months of pre-program training, qualified applicants then interview for positions. To qualify for an interview, participants must have completed 20 workshops (40 hours of training), 20 community service hours, participated in a Special Event, and have a completed resume. 

As every year passes, our SYEP expands and enhances.  In the past, we have always worked solely with non-profits and City Departments, and have 6 of our Interns working with the Youth Bureau, the Senior Center and the Adult Day Care Program.  However, this summer we are extremely excited to announce the first City SYEP Public/Private Partnership! 

Five businesses have partnered with the Youth Bureau to provide employment opportunities to seven of our workers.  Participating businesses include, Third Generation Chiropractic, Gold Coast Business Services (formally Mailboxes Etc.), Gold Marital Arts, Page One Restaurant (at Soundview), and Green Forest Veterinary. 

For more information about the program, call Jacki Yonick, Youth Employment Coordinator at 516.671.4600.  Inquiries to work for Summer 2014 should be made in January 2014.
