RESOLUTION INTRODUCED BY HUMAN RESOURCES COMMITTEE TO SET SALARIES FOR THE POSITIONS OF SYEP PARTICIPANTS

 

WHEREAS, the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) provides State funds to the Department of Family Services who in turn has a MOA with the Sullivan County Center for Workforce Development to administer the New York State Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP); and

 

WHEREAS, SYEP is an important platform to introduce eligible youth into the workforce, help them acquire skills that can be used to improve school performance and become responsible adults; and

 

WHEREAS, the current New York State minimum wage is $13.20 per hour.  In order to stay competitive with other seasonal jobs and encourage the youth to apply with the Center for Workforce Development, we are requesting to pay each youth participant $15.00 per hour; and

 

WHEREAS, these funds, salaries and benefits are paid for through the OTDA under the MOA with the Department of Family Services which are made available and in effect from May 1, 2022 through September 30, 2022; and 

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Sullivan County Legislature hereby sets the salaries for the positions of SYEP participants at $15.00 per hour respectively.
