|Ladders for Leaders through the New York City Department of Youth & Community Development||Internship||Not listed - do ASAP||Since 2013, the Central Queens Y is proud to be an L4L provider that serves these age groups. The program hopes to include about 1,700 participants at 500 work sites citywide, matching adolescents with professional opportunities within corporations, government agencies and non-profit organizations. Some examples of businesses that have participated in Ladders providing internship opportunities include AOL, Pandora, Tishman Speyer, KPMG, Kate Spade and various city agencies included NYC Department of Design and Construction, NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
Our goal as an L4L provider is to help place individuals in work environments that suit their abilities and interest, while also providing them with work readiness training. The participants participate in the program throughout the summer. Participants work anywhere from 25-40 hours per week. Additionally, all participants will take part in 20-30 hours of pre - employment workshops. These workshops teach basic work readiness skills, including, but not limited to, resume writing, job interview skills, and dealing with conflict in a work environment.
