We offer paid summer work experience at Kaiser Permanente facilities throughout California and encourage students to consider that lifelong 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. On-Site Coordinators for the Program do their best to match each student with a supervisor in the students’ field of interest. The supervisors receive an orientation and are encouraged to give students a variety of clerical and administrative tasks that are within context of the department goals. The students are encouraged to ask questions, make every effort to understand the relevance of the tasks, and to take responsibility for their learning. Students are evaluated by the supervisors, as are the supervisors evaluated by the students. Excellence is recognized for student performance, participation, attendance, and learning at an end of the program luncheon.
