Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP)

Summer Youth Employment Program is coming to an end for this year and CHRC would like to thank all the participants that have donated their time to helping this summer's program. This year’s youth have learned all about the history of "The 7 Hills of Cincinnati". They have also gained knowledge on how to create a PowerPoint and give a research based presentation. Each participant will receive a gift card to Walmart to help with school and house supplies for the upcoming school year. Besides learning about the 7 Hills, the youth have also learned about the importance of community service and why giving back is so vital. CHRC's hope is that all the learning experiences the youth have achieved will be shown throughout their neighborhoods and family members.
