Supplemental Youth Employment Training Program (SYETP)
The Supplemental Youth Employment Training Program (SYETP) provides practical work experience for Kodiak area Native youth between the ages of 14-24, helping to build strong communities all around our island by providing our youth with the life experience they need. Youth placed in a successful match with a business are added to KANA's payroll for up to 150 hours, also making them eligible for a half work Co-op credit at Kodiak High School.
SYETP is designed to:
- Emphasize real-world labor expectations
- Increase awareness of services offered by local community-based organizations
- Provide opportunities for career instruction, financial literacy training, academic improvement, and social growth
SYETP enables participants to become active members in the community by providing them with employment and training while encouraging healthy families, education, and leadership. Participation also gives opportunity for youth to explore different fields in search of a future career and helps them gain confidence and skills needed to continue towards their goals, both personal and professional, as they enter adulthood.
