What is the school-based model of SYEP?
The school-based model is designed to utilize the SYEP platform to strengthen the connection between academic learning and summer career exploration through partnerships with Career & Technical Education (“CTE”) schools. With these specializations in mind, we tailor our job development towards these specific tracks so that students can gain real world experience relevant to their studies.
