All great businesses deserve great interns.
New York City's Ladders for Leaders program takes the time to recruit, prepare and match high-achieving students with large and small organizations looking for summer help.
Using the citywide ad campaign as a recruitment tool, the city looks to build on this success by growing the program by more than 150 new employers - and offering internships to several hundred more students.
It's a win-win for both local businesses and our City.
Get Help, Give Experience
Recent studies show that more than 4 out of 10 adult New Yorkers with a serious mental illness do not get help or delay getting help. Sadly, because mental health services are often not coordinated, people don't know where to look, and there is still a stigma about seeking help for mental health. With ThriveNYC: A Mental Health Roadmap for All, our city aims to change that by addressing our mental health crisis with a comprehensive public health approach. Along with supporting the development of ThriveNYC, the Mayor's Fund supported the production of this public service announcement with funding from our private sponsors.
I am an #UpStander
An UpStander is someone who does what they can to put an end to domestic violence, whether by speaking out when they witness domestic violence or by counseling friends and families on the respectful, loving relationships they deserve. Watch Mayor Bill de Blasio, Mayor’s Fund Board Chair and First Lady Chirlane McCray, Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz, Jr., Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and more leaders urge all New Yorkers to be Upstanders in this public service announcement.
