Children’s Aid Society Employment Program
The Children’s Aid Society’s Next Generation Center (NGC), located at 1522 Southern Boulevard in the Bronx, has designed a transitional employment program that allows young people ages 16-22 to move through a series of supported works readiness and internship experiences. Our approach teaches young people to work while they work and serves as a vehicle for moving them through the stages of change. Our goal is to support participants until they are ready, willing and able to succeed at work outside NGC. The majority of employment training takes place onsite; however some opportunities do take place offsite. Students will first participate in a series of work readiness workshops, and upon successful completion, will have the opportunity to receive a paid internship. The next cycle of employment program classes will begin on July 8th, so students should apply now. A flyer for the center can be found by clicking here: http://freepdfhosting.com/87970f8c47.pdf.
