Career Readiness

Our career-readiness programs help youth and adults in our neighborhoods to build the skills and knowledge they need to be ready for work and financial independence. From adult education to job placements, we help people find meaningful, stable employment, giving them the opportunity to earn a living wage, develop their careers, and improve their quality of life.

Programs include:

  • Summer Youth Employment Program
  • Literacy Connection
  • NYC Justice Corps
  • Arches: A Transformative Mentoring Program
