SYEP Site Supervisor

Our Organization:
Levine Music is a welcoming community where children and adults find lifelong inspiration and joy through learning, performing, listening to, and participating with others in music. Levine’s core values – excellence and opportunity – infuse everything we do. Our distinguished faculty offers a broad and well-rounded curriculum that provides a strong musical foundation for students of different ages, abilities, and interests. We strive to make Levine’s education available to everyone. Hundreds of students receive substantial scholarship assistance; many hundreds more receive free instruction through fully funded in-school programs.

MBSYEP Program:
The Mayor Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program (MBSYEP) is a locally funded initiative sponsored by the DC Department of Employment Services (DOES) that provides District youth ages 14 to 24 with enriching and constructive summer work experiences through subsidized placements in the private and government sectors. Through MBSYEP, we strive to provide young people with the opportunity to: Earn money and gain meaningful work experience; Learn and develop the skills, attitudes, and commitment necessary to succeed in today’s world of work; Gain exposure to various exciting career industries; and Interact with dynamic working professionals in a positive work environment. Though MBSYEP is a short-term employment and training program, our goal is to introduce our youth to employers who will positively impact their future. Employers in the Washington, DC metropolitan area make this annual program possible by volunteering to serve as host employers and providing structured job opportunities for youth during the summer.
