SYEP End of Season Celebration
This summer, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH), in partnership with the DC Department of Employee Services (DOES), hosted 85 youth through the 2013 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). DCCAH placed youth at the agency headquarters as well as with nine partner worksites including The Atlas Performing Arts Center, Capital Fringe Festival, F.R.E.S.H.H., Gala Hispanic Theatre, Guerrilla Arts, Next Stop Arts Project, Powell House Project, Theatre Lab and We Act Radio. The youth gained valuable work experience and learned about the many job opportunities in the creative economy.
The August 8th SYEP End of Season Celebration at The Atlas Performing Arts Center will allow youth to share the results of their hard work and present the skills they’ve learned or improved upon during this unique summer experience.
