The Summer Youth Internship Program (SYIP) is a project that the SIEC is pleased to deliver to youth of our schools for the fifteenth year. This program provides youth with summer employment and a look at specific careers at the same time. In the past 5 years, over 350 youth have taken part in the SYIP with a 98% completion rate.
The internship starts on July 8, 2019 and ends on August 16, 2019(alternate dates can be arranged if necessary). We ask employers to commit to the full six-weeks with their student(s) in order to complete the program. We are once again partnering with the Construction, Tourism/Hospitality and the Information and Communication Technology Sectors. It is the objective of the program to provide interested students an opportunity to explore various opportunities available to them in hopes of continuing in their chosen field after graduation. Participating students also have the opportunity to earn high school credits and hours towards an apprenticeship.
