The Mayor’s Summer Youth Employment Program (MSYEP) began in 1992, and for more than twenty years has provided skills and workforce opportunities year-round for thousands of Evanston at-risk youth ages 14-18. As a workforce development and non-law enforcement crime prevention initiative, the MSYEP emphasizes real-world labor expectations, increases the awareness of services offered by local community based organizations, and provides opportunities for career instruction, financial literacy training, occupational skills training, and social-emotional growth. The program gives participating youth up to nine weeks of entry level work experience in a variety of jobs and industries through community based organizations, city government departments, and private sector businesses.
