These 7 activities take roughly 3 hours to complete, and will result in you being well on the track to career readiness! Each weekly activity(s) is designed to compliment the core SYEP programs (Hats & Ladders, Project Based Learning with YDI, and the Workplace Challenge). At the end of the summer you should reevaluate your career goals and update them based on their new knowledge.
