A Community Benefit Program geared primarily toward 11th and 12th grade students, the Kaiser Permanente LAUNCH High School Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) has been creating opportunities for underserved high school student populations since 1968. We offer paid summer work experience at Kaiser Permanente facilities throughout California and encourage students to consider that life long learning and earning power begins with a high school diploma. There are a wide variety of health care and health care support jobs available, and many students who have participated in the SYEP have chosen health care-related fields after graduation – some of them right here at Kaiser Permanente.
As a SYEP student, you’ll be paid for your time, working in one of our departments while learning about careers in health care. Additionally, when a certified Regional Occupational Program (ROP) teacher is involved and you complete the various components of the program, you can earn up to 10 Cooperative Vocational Education (CVE) units. These units may be added to the total units required for high school graduation.
