In communities across the country, summer youth employment programs (SYEP) play an important role preparing young people for careers. Research shows that these programs improve the economic, academic and behavioral outcomes for youth and young adults in low-income communities. However, with Covid-19 social distancing requirements, implementing SYEP this summer will require new and innovative strategies and approaches. This interactive webinar will highlight specific examples of strategies, tactics, and resources and create a space to exchange ideas about how to solve common challenges.
