VR Summer Youth Programs

A VR Summer Youth Program (SYP) is a great way for students to prepare for careers in the 21st Century. Students will participate in a variety of Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) through activities specifically designed to engage young minds. VR will partner with approved SYP providers to deliver any combination of the following Pre-ETS to create a unique Summer Youth Program experience.

Pre-ETS include:

Pre-ETS will vary by provider, so students and parents should explore the programming offered by each approved provider.

Two Summer Youth Program opportunities are being offered: Summer Youth Demonstration Projects and the General SYP. Only students not currently involved with VR may participate in the Demonstration Projects.

Specific program dates will vary by provider.

Providers approved to deliver the SYP in collaboration with VR are listed below. Check frequently for updates. This list will grow as providers are approved. To sign up for SYP services, contact the provider.

Students do not have to become VR customers or be referred to through the STAR portal to participate in the SYP. If you would like to receive Pre-ETS year-round, please contact your local VR Office using the VR Office Directory to sign up for services! Ask your local VR representative how you can get additional services, including Pre-ETS.

For general questions about the SYP, contact us at VRSYP@vr.fldoe.org.
