This manual for youth in the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) provides an overview of the program, information about program rules and pay procedures, and tips on behavior and handling money. It consists of eleven sections. Section 1 provides a brief overview of the manual. The purpose and format of SYEP is outlined in sections 2 and 3. Work rules (covering attendance and suspension or termination from work assignment) are explained in section 4, while participant rights and grievance procedures are covered in section 5. Supportive services are discussed in section 6. Section 7 contains eight tips on staying with one's job, and the relationship between program participants and supervisors is the subject of section 8. Pay rates and procedures and income tax refund policy are outlined in section 9. Five tips on budgeting money and a sample budget form are provided in section 10. The final section is a place for students to record such work-related data as worksite address, pay rate, and work schedule. (A guide to establishing and evaluating SYEP worksites, and manuals for supervisors in SYEP and training supervisors in SYEP are available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
