VACCINATION REQUIREMENT
To help ensure the School Year Abroad Home Office is a safe environment, SYA requires that all employees, interns and volunteers in the office be fully vaccinated against COVID 19 unless a reasonable accommodation is approved by SYA. “Fully vaccinated” is defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and may change as new recommendations are made.

Under federal and Massachusetts law, SYA will consider medical and religious exemptions to vaccination only. In order to request an accommodation, employees will need to provide documentation of a medical condition or of a sincerely held religious belief, and SYA will then engage in an individualized analysis with the employee or volunteer to determine if an accommodation can be made, as long as it does not cause an undue hardship or pose a direct threat to the SYA work environment. For those employees requesting an accommodation, they should speak with SYA President Tom Hassan.

SYA is an Equal Opportunity Employer and actively seeks candidates who add to the diversity of our organization. SYA is committed to building a team that embraces and works toward equity, diversity and inclusion for our entire community, both in the United States and abroad.
