Empowering Our Youth

Summer Youth Employment Program

28 Years

Still going strong

The health and safety of our residents and employees are top priorities for
us at WC Smith. As you know, the COVID-19 crisis has had a significant impact on our city and county. Schools and businesses are closed and many programs and activities been cancelled. And while local leaders are working on plans to slowly reopen the economy, we don’t know will happen or how long we will have to practice “social distancing.” Everyone agrees, however, that protecting our health and safety and stopping the spread of the virus is our most important priority. Given the current situation and the uncertainly we face, we unfortunately have decided to cancel this year’s SYEP and we will not be hiring for summer positions. We understand that this might be disappointing for you. Each summer we look forward to meeting new students and welcoming back our returning participants. Please know that we considered many ways to keep this year’s program going but concluded that this was not possible.
We hope that you will consider applying for an SYEP next summer.
