NeON Works is designed for people who are at all different stages of their employment journey: from the young person who is not sure where to begin to the college graduate who wants to get ahead in her chosen field - providing a highly individualized set of opportunities depending on each person’s interests and work readiness. Some participants might just attend a workshop or two; others may want to sit down with a NeON Works service provider for an in-depth, personal assessment to help figure out their goals and make a plan to achieve them; some will attend credentialing programs; and others will pursue educational programs.
NeON Works provide three main services along with wraparound supports as needed:
People on probation who live anywhere in NYC, and other NeON neighborhood residents, with priority to people aged 16-24. There are no educational requirements.
Each of the seven NeON neighborhoods has its own service provider/partner. Programs will take place at NeONs and other locations in these neighborhoods, as well as virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.
