If you’re looking for a Summer 2021 opportunity, NeON Arts: Beautify NYC is now accepting applications. Join young people across New York City working collectively to beautify New York City public spaces and parks while building new skills and social connections. The stipend is $2,000. Apply now! The deadline is June 25th.
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.
