Summer Youth Employment Program
Lifespan's Summer Youth Employment (SYE) Program is designed to promote career exploration, professionalism, and essential skills development for young people.

Teens are placed in a wide variety of departments throughout Lifespan, including:
- Physical Therapy
- Central Processing
- Human Resources
- Food and Nutrition
- Respiratory Care
- Child Psychology
- Community Health
- Information Systems (IT)
How to Apply for Summer Youth Employment
The Lifespan Summer Youth Employment program is providing opportunities to at-risk youth in our community and benefiting Lifespan's workforce.
The application deadline for the 2023 Summer Youth session is Monday, January 9, 2023, at 11:59 p.m.
Upon graduation in August, our summer employees take with them a wealth of personal and professional experience, with some youth even gaining permanent employment. Lifespan also stays in contact with the teens beyond the summer to continue career counseling and support.
