Learning to Work

We believe education is the key that enables all people to create economic and civic opportunities for themselves, their families, and their community. Our focus is on critical development periods -- early childhood and adolescence -- and critical junctures -- points at which people are independent.

Learning to Work (LTW) is designed to enhance the academic component of select NYC High Schools. The goal of LTW is to assist students in overcoming obstacles that impede their progress toward a high school diploma and lead them toward rewarding employment and educational experiences after graduation. LTW offers academic exploration, work preparation skills development, and paid internships.

We enrich, supplement, and enhance the public school system and place college within reach of motivated students. We provide technology and career readiness training to enable students to improve their economic status and lead more fulfilling lives.
