Internships and Volunteering

Internship Opportunities for Youth and Young Adults

The BID supports the advancement of youth and young adult groups throughout downtown Jamaica.

Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP)

During the months of July and August, the BID employed 6 summer interns to work with its sanitation program. Interns from SYEP assisted with litter, graffiti and weed removal throughout the district and painted fire hydrants and bollards along Sutphin Boulevard.

SYEP provides New York City youth between the ages of 14 and 24 with paid summer employment for up to seven weeks in July and August. SYEP also provides workshops on job readiness, career exploration, financial literacy and opportunities to continue education and social growth.
