Mayor's Youth Employment & Education Program

The Mayor's Youth Employment and Education Program (MYEEP) provides job readiness training, paid work experience, academic support, and personal development opportunities for San Francisco youth between the ages of 14- 17. The program targets youth with barriers to employment. MYEEP is implemented through a collaboration of ten community-based organizations.

The Buchanan YMCA is a collaborative member of MYEEP, a program housed by the Japanese Community Youth Council, and funded by the Department of Children, Youth and Their Families

Training & Academic Support



MYEEP prepares youth for their internships through a series of training workshops. During these workshops, youth will build competencies and skills so they will have the ability to thrive in the workplace. 

Training Areas

Academic Support

Participants in our School Year Program will receive academic mentorship weekly. Youth will have homework space, access to computers, and one-on-one or small group tutoring. Academic Mentors work with youth to maintain their GPA requirements and teach skills in organization, test taking, and more.
