Wrapping up with SYEP

by Brieanna Womack

SYEP stands for Summer Youth Employment Program, which helps young adults get a job for the summer and earn some extra cash. SYEP is funded by the Department of Employment Services. I chose Common Good because I believed it would be beneficial for me to be outside and working on something than staying inside all the time like I have done in previous summers. I didn’t want to continue with the same routine of staying inside summer after summer. I wanted to get outside and have fun, and I thought that working outside would help me accomplish this goal.
