New York City


The NYC Bridges program began in 2018. NYC Bridges serves in-school and out-of-school young adults ages 17-24.

Bridges staff members, known as Youth Employment Specialists, work with young adults individually and in groups to identify career goals, develop interviewing skills, connect with employers, create a résumé, apply for jobs, get a job, and succeed in a job.  Youth Employment Specialists work closely with each young person, providing instruction, guidance, and mentoring that increases confidence, builds character, and enhances professionalism.
