Summer Youth Employment Program –  The Georgetown Project partnered with local businesses to offer GISD high school students the opportunity to participate in the Summer Youth Employment Program.  SYEP was a paid summer internship that offered valuable work experiences in entry-level employment positions for students who had no work experience.  The program was a big success.
