More About SYI
In addition to the training and work experiences you will have through this program, volunteerism is a significant part of both TeenQuest and the Summer Youth Initiative (SYI) experience. Not only does it connect you with community members who need assistance, but it shows how the effort to lend a hand gives back to the volunteer on numerous levels.
SYI Teens: Moving Forward
Are you ready for the next challenge? You are still eligible to apply for a new Summer Youth Initiative job each year you are in high school. As a TeenQuest graduate, you do not have to repeat the training, but you do need to re-apply each year to be considered for further SYI employment opportunities.
Former SYI participants who have worked for SYI agencies and who have graduated from high school or are currently in college may be considered by agencies for teen supervisor positions.
Special Job Fairs for former SYI participants that have graduated from high school are also available twice a year. Click here to learn more about upcoming Job Fairs.
