SYIP Employer Toolkit

Thank you for participating in the 2020 Summer Youth Internship Program (SYIP).  Because of partners like you, CareerSource Polk is able to provide placements for 400 interns throughout Polk County this summer.  We are excited to collaborate with you to provide a meaningful work experience to young adults ages 16 to 24.  You are uniquely positioned to provide training and guidance allowing these young adults to develop positive work habits, and other critical skill sets necessary to secure sustainable future employment. It is through your dedication and commitment that assist these interns with identifying 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!

Review the employer orientation thoroughly and contact Eshia Smith 863.508.1100 x3320 with any questions.
