Sponsored Employment Program
Sponsored Employment Program (SEP) is an opportunity for students in Palo Alto, California, to gain experience as a peer mentor/program assistant for eight weeks during the summer from June to August. This position is for college students to help with the SEP program during the summer.
SEP was established in 2005 to provide summer employment opportunities for up to 100 students in East Palo Alto, California, who have challenges with employment. Challenges can include low income, no high school diploma, limited or no English language skills, and others. The organization matches students to jobs in private, public and non-profit organizations where they can gain valuable work experience.
Students receive pay and are assigned a mentor to guide them through the summer employment program. Peers, parents and others help to provide a meaningful, supportive and supervised summer work experience.
Since the program began, SEP has helped almost 800 students with summer work opportunities and the reward of contributing toward their communities. The program is sponsored by One East Palo Alto (OEPA) Neighborhood Improvement Initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the social, physical, spiritual, educational and economic lives of residents of East Palo Alto, California. Funding is provided by donations from foundations, corporations, government, public and private donors.
