Meet Our 2015 SYEP Interns! - Clearly Innovative | Web and Mobile DevelopmentClearly Innovative | Web and Mobile Development

Today is the first day for our 2015 SYEP interns! The Mayor Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is a wonderful opportunity not only for young adults from Washington D.C. to gain valuable full-time work experience but for companies around D.C. to tap into a talented pool of individuals eager to make a significant contribution.

Clearly Innovative has worked with SYEP for 4 years and we’ve been extremely satisfied with the talented young people who’ve interned with us through the program. We’ve written blog posts and even conducted an interview with former SYEP intern Adebimbola Ogunyale who is a prime example of the amazing individuals we’ve worked with through SYEP.

Our SYEP interns in many ways reflect our mission of exposing young people from Washington D.C. to career opportunities in the technology sector. Most of our work towards that mission is through our education arm Luma Lab, but the SYE program provides us with an additional mode of achieving this goal.

This summer, we’re bringing on two SYEP interns eager to use their experience with Clearly Innovative to gain greater awareness on the next steps they want to take in their respective careers.
