Through the RSYEP program, I have developed great communication skills that have helped me become a reliable employee. This program is a great tool for any young person looking for a good work experience!

For the past two summers I have been a worker for the Raleigh Summer Youth Employee Program. I loved this job program because I was able to gain so much knowledge and experience within workforce that I would not be able to gain anywhere else. It provided me the opportunity to enhance my professionalism as well as building networking contacts throughout the city!
