The Mayor Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program (MBSYEP) is a locally funded initiative sponsored by the Department of Employment Services (DOES) that provides District youth ages 14 to 24 with enriching and constructive summer work experiences through subsidized placements in the private and government sectors. Mayor Bowser signed the Mayor's Order 2015-037 on January 14, 2015 to rename the program the Mayor Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program in honor of former Mayor and MBSYEP founder Marion Barry. Youth placed with CAH will be assigned to arts and humanities- focused worksites.
The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) is soliciting applications from qualified arts and humanities organizations to serve as sites of employment for youth participating in MBSYEP. The contract will support arts and humanities organizations selected for worksites of the MBSYEP for 2019 through CAH.
Submission Deadline: Friday, March 29, 2019 at 4 pm EDT
