Intern & Earn Program

The Intern and Earn Program provides opportunities for youth ages 18-24 who are currently not in school and not employed. Through 2 weeks of work-readiness training and 12 weeks of internship experience at various companies and organizations throughout NYC, the Intern and Earn Program provides young adults with the training and skills needed to make a successful transition into adulthood and gain economic independence. Participants also receive assistance with pursuing educational options such as placement into a High School Equivalency (HSE) program and/or help enrolling into college as well as assistance with career placement such as finding employment and/or gaining certificate training in a specialize field. Past interns had the opportunity to explore fields in:

  • Animal Care
  • Childcare
  • Government Agencies
  • Medical Sector
  • Museums
  • Retail/Customer Service
