East Hartford, CT— East Hartford Works invites youth to participate in the Summer Youth Employment and Learning Program (SYELP) and gain valuable experience.


The SYELP is a youth employment program, connecting Connecticut youth living in the North Central Region between the ages of 14 and 24 with career exploration opportunities and paid work experience each summer. Participants must qualify by income and other designated categories. If you are eligible for or receive free lunch at your school, you will automatically qualify. Deadline to apply is May 10, 2024.

Participants have the opportunity to explore their interests and career pathways, develop workplace skills, and engage in learning experiences that help in developing their social, civic, and leadership skills. By participating in structured project- and work-based opportunities, Connecticut youth are better prepared for careers of the future.

The program runs in July and August. Participants are eligible for up to 120 hours of paid work across a variety of fields.
