CareerWise New York connects education and industry to benefit students and businesses
CareerWise New York is a first of its kind, modern youth apprenticeship program based in New York City. Our program offers high school students opportunities in growing NYC industries, such as IT, financial services, and business operations, and provides all apprentices with a practical learning experience to augment the classroom. For employers, CareerWise New York offers businesses a hands-on role in developing work-ready talent with the skills employers need to innovate and grow their business.
CareerWise New York is a collaborative initiative, supported by CareerWise Colorado and HERE to HERE, a Bronx-based organization working to ensure young people have access to opportunity and employers have the talent they need to thrive.
The CareerWise New York model borrows elements from the Swiss system, which is widely regarded as the gold standard in apprenticeship, in that it ensures benefit to both students and businesses as it serves as an intermediary between the complex systems of education and industry.
CareerWise New York’s mission is to create opportunities for youth and businesses across NYC by developing and supporting an innovative, sustainable youth apprenticeship program. Through this business-led, student-centered model, CareerWise New York brings together public and private stakeholders to ensure students have access to the skills and knowledge they need for financial and academic success, and that businesses have access to highly-trained talent.
