SYEP – Employer Orientation

Thank you for participating in the 2019 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP).  Because of partners like you, CareerSource Polk is able to provide SYEP placements for 600 youth throughout Polk County this summer.  We are excited to collaborate with you to provide a meaningful work experience for youth ages 16 to 24.  You are uniquely positioned to provide training and guidance to allow our youth to develop positive work habits, and other critical skill sets necessary to secure sustainable future employment. It is through your dedication and commitment that our youth identify possible career paths, obtain employment, and grow to become our future leaders.  Below is our online orientation that provides you with critical information you will need to be a successful worksite!
