Youth Workforce Programming

Queens Community House has a wide array of employment services for youth and young adults: 

Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP): SYEP provides youth between the ages of 14 and 24 with paid summer employment for up to six weeks in July and August. Participants work in a variety of entry-level jobs at government agencies, non-profit organizations, hospitals, summer camps, law firms, and retail businesses. SYEP also provides workshops on job readiness, career exploration, and financial literacy.

Work, Learn, & Grow Employment Program (WLG): WLG is a City Council-funded initiative designed to build off of the experiences gained in the Summer Youth Employment Program. WLG provides former SYEP participants who are between the ages of 14-24 and currently in-school with career readiness training and paid employment opportunities for up to 25 weeks from October to April.  

Neighborhood Intergenerational Chore and Errand Program (NICE): A year-round employment program for high school students. The youth workers are trained to work with older adults. Students provide chore/shopping assistance and companionship to home-bound seniors in the local community as well as friendship and mobility assistance to older adults in area nursing homes.

Queens NDA Opportunity Youth Program: A 14-week employment program for out-of-school and unemployed 16 to 24-year-olds who live in 11368, 11372, or 11373 zip codes. The program runs from September to June.
