BronxWorks has education and employment programs for out-of-school youth aged 16-24.  In addition to our pre-HSE and HSE prep classes, we also provide job readiness training, job placement help, college access, and other services.  After participants have found work, BronxWorks follows up with the young people to help them retain their jobs.

BronxWorks also provides individual case management services to ensure that participants have the support needed to overcome various obstacles and achieve their goals.

Excel Education and Employment Program

Excel offers career training that exposes youth to a variety of employment options so that they can choose the area that most interests them.  In addition, our services prepare young adults for the world of work, helping them to create resumes, prepare for job interviews, gain computer skills, and learn how to manage money.

For those who did not graduate high school, Excel has daily HSE classes that combine group and individual instruction to prepare participants to obtain their high school equivalency diploma.

Neighborhood Development Area (NDA) Opportunity Youth Program

The Neighborhood Development Area (NDA) Opportunity Youth Program provides work readiness training to youth 16-24 years old who are out of school and unemployed.  Participants must reside in NDA 4 or 5 and be able to commit to a 14 week hands-on paid internship experience.  Don’t delay as we only have a limited number of placements each year.
