The Summer Youth Employment Program started as New York Presbyterian’s (NYP) response to the impact of the pandemic on closing down traditional opportunities for young people to work during the summer to gain experience in career options and to make money.

NYP approached the Westchester County Youth Bureau (YB) to identify ways to connect young people to jobs. YB Executive Director Dr. DaMia Harris-Madden and her team identified young people and placement opportunities across the County in Peekskill, Ossining, Mt. Vernon, Greenburgh and New Rochelle, among other communities.

County Executive George Latimer hosted the conversation on this successful County/Private partnership.
