Do you believe that a young person’s first job is more than a paycheck? And is actually a significant milestone on the path toward adulthood and most importantly an opportunity to explore. Through this exploration, each can connect interests, subjects learned in school and competencies developed through day-to-day life interaction to the world of work and the careers within, such that they still have time to decide, pivot, grow, and determine what adulthood looks like for them. If you are excited by the prospect of impacting the lives of youth in such away and possess leadership experience we would like to meet you.


The Mayor’s Youth Employment and Education Program (MYEEP) is the largest youth employment program in San Francisco, providing over 1200 high school-aged youth annually with subsidized employment and opportunities to explore, learn and create paths.

MYEEP is a collaboration of 10 nonprofit agencies that utilizes a neighborhood-based approach to provide workforce development to program participants. Each MYEEP location includes a Coordinator and an Academic Mentor. The program also includes a peer leadership strategy that supports service delivery at each agency.

The Academic Mentors work during the school-year session to support the academic success of participants.

MYEEP is one of several employment programs, including SF YouthWorks, Project Pull, SF STEM Academy, that form JCYC Workforce Programs which provide a continuum of employment opportunities and experiences to over 2000 young people annually.
