Description & History

For over 70 years The Way To Work has built and maintained its reputation as one of the most successful youth workforce development programs in the nation. Today, we continue to provide men and women ages 17-21 with the skills and support they need to pursue successful careers.

Located in the heart of New York City?s financial district, our training facility simulates the culture of a professional workplace and stimulates our clients? desires to succeed. Our program is holistic; our passionate staff doesn?t just teach clients the fundamentals for the working world, they encourage clients with support and high expectations to build on their unique assets. In turn, our alumni enhance New York City?s community in the growing sectors of healthcare, technology, finance, public safety, and customer service.

What sets us apart is our long-term commitment to our clients. Our team of caring adult mentors provides graduates with two years of follow up services, ensuring that clients not only keep their jobs, but also move up in their careers.

By investing in the future of our young people, we invest in the future of our city.

We are The Way To Work.
