The City Will Pay Young NYers Up To $1200 This Summer While Remote Learning

Some NYC young people could earn up to $1,200 preparing for future jobs.

The city just released news of a summer program called “NeON (Neighborhood Opportunity Network) Summer.” The program will give New Yorkers in certain neighborhoods between 14 and 24 years of age the opportunity to be paid to learn.

The programs help “build skills to succeed in the workplace, strengthen community, and support young people and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic.” It’s a six-week-long summer program which will help participants think about career options, develop work skills, and use the program as a creative outlet. The courses were created to “strengthen social, civic, and leadership abilities.” According to a press release, they will receive stipends for their work, up to $1,200.

Eligible young New Yorkers include:

The deadline for those in the “hardest-hit” COVID-19 communities was last week, but you still have a day to apply for those living in NeON Neighborhoods and NYC Youth Connected to Probation (the deadline is today, June 15).

Apply online here.

Of course, this news comes after the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) was suspended due to COVID-19 safety and budget reasons.
