Charleston County Government has extended the deadline for accepting applications for the 2017 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) to May 5. The program provides teenagers and young adults who reside in Charleston County an opportunity to develop workplace readiness skills, provide exposure to the work world, and gain experience in the operations of County government. There are a wide variety of opportunities, including – to name only a few – positions with Charleston County Government, the Charleston County Library, and the Charleston Animal Society in office administration, customer service, facilities management, procurement, and finance.
Eligible individuals must meet the following criteria:
- Be between the ages of 16 – 21 at the time of application submission.
- Be currently enrolled in high school or college.
- Be a resident of Charleston County.
The program lasts for six weeks, between June 23 and August 3, 2017. Hours worked are typically 4 hours each day, 5 days a week, 20 hours per week / 120 total hours. The application deadline is May 5 or until 175 applications have been received, whichever occurs first.
