Ladders for Leaders

Ladders for Leaders provides paid internships to NYC youth between the ages of 16 and 22.  Applicants are evaluated based on academic performance, response to an essay question, and résumé quality.  Selected applicants will undertake 20-30 hours of pre-employment training designed to teach essential workplace readiness skills and professional etiquette.  Participants will then have the opportunity to interview for summer internships at a variety of companies.  Last summer's employer partners included Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan Chase, and The Pandora Group, just to name a few.  Partnering employers make final selections on hiring for the six-week paid internship.

Talented individuals with demonstrated leadership experience who possess a genuine desire to gain professional experience should visit in winter 2016 and complete the online application for NYC Ladders for Leaders with the Central Queens Y.  Click here for the L4L Flyer with Link to Application.
