Youth Education & Job Training Program

Program Details

Learn job skills and take classes to earn your High School Equivalency Diploma (formerly known as the GED)

Get the education and skills you need to gain employment and thrive in your career.

Participants take classes in Business English, Business Math, Keyboarding, Office Procedures, Computer Training, Public Speaking & Communication, and World of Work. Pre-TASC and TASC classes (formerly GED) are taught on-site by teachers from the NYC Department of Education (District 79). Participants also have the opportunity to earn the National Retail Federation Customer Service Certification and the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification. Each participant is assigned to a supervisor (counselor) who monitors the trainee’s progress and offers one-on-one assistance with personal, educational, and career problems. We place a great emphasis on improving soft skills and demand professional behavior, attire, attitude, and communication at all times.
