"We have thoroughly enjoyed partnering with the Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). We have worked with the program under the leadership of Darlene Young for the past 17 years. She has increased training opportunities for youth in the program and the training is evident when we meet the youth. I am always proud when the youth repeat their names and telephone numbers when they leave voice messages to connect at the onset of their summer employment. They also arrive prepared to learn and eager to work. We hired one SYEP who has now been with us for 11 years having been promoted a couple of times during her tenure. We have recently hired the two young men who worked with us this past summer. The SYEP is a great stepping stone for experience in the working world for many youth who may not have otherwise had such an opportunity".
