Work, Learn & Grow Employment Program
The Work, Learn & Grow Employment Program (WLG) is a New York City Council funded initiative designed to build off of the experiences gained in the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). WLG provides participants of the 2016 SYEP who are between the ages of 14-24 and currently in-school with career readiness training and paid employment opportunities for up to twenty five weeks from October to April. WLG career readiness training will focus such topics as career exploration, financial literacy, conflict resolution, résumé/cover letter development and opportunities to continue education and social growth.
Participants can apply for the CQY WL&GEP online at https://worklearngrow.yepsonline.org/ or through CQY beginning in Fall 2016.
For more information on employment for individuals ages 14 to 24, contact Tarique Rumi, SYEP & WLG Program Manager, at 718.286.8121 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ladders for Leaders
Ladders for Leaders 2017 has been launched! "Ladders" 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.
