Principal Responsibilities:

The NYC Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is the nation's most extensive youth employment program, connecting New York City youth between the ages of 16 through 21 with career exploration opportunities and paid work experience each summer. This is an important program for low-income youth who may face multiple barriers to obtaining early work experiences. Youth benefit from workforce development programs that offer hands-on exposure, paid internships, access to job-skills training, and opportunities to develop social, civic, and leadership skills.
The Work, Learn & Grow Employment Program (WLG) is a New York City Council-funded initiative designed to build off of the experiences gained in the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). WLG provides participants who partook in the SYEP program and are between the ages of 16-19 and currently in-school with career readiness training and paid employment opportunities for up to twenty-five weeks from October to March. WLG career readiness training will focus on such topics as career exploration, financial literacy, conflict resolution, resume/cover letter development, and opportunities to continue education and social growth.

The Job Developer's primary responsibility is to successfully recruit and retain diverse worksites that provide over 850 SYEP-OY & WLG program participants a positive work and learning experience where they attain the skills, strategies, and knowledge needed to thrive in the workforce. The role encompasses training and co-leading program activities, regular supervision of line staff, recordkeeping and reporting, data entry, communicating with partners, and other related functions. The Job Developer will also ensure worksites comply with DYCD regulations and maintain year-round relationship with site supervisors. The Job Developer will supervise the CUNY Service Corps and Work-Study Programs, and maintain the Y's recruitment database updated.
