The Northern Virginia Educating Youth through Employment (EYE) Program

The Northern Virginia Educating Youth through Employment (EYE) program is a summer initiative that recruits, screens and matches youth ages 18-21 with professional opportunities in the private sector and other area businesses. These young adults are required to attend intensive training workshops before and during their work experiences. The EYE program offers local youth more than just a summer job, but rather an exciting, professional opportunity with training that will allow them to explore a career path that matches their interest.
