Expand Your Workforce at No Cost

Sponsored by the Chinese-American Planning Council, the goal of this program is to generate jobs for young people in the neighborhood while providing a skilled workforce for businesses, at no cost. Businesses who apply to become an internship site are able to receive skilled interns who work 20 hours each week and receive wages that are paid entirely by the Center for Economic Opportunity. Please email or call Sofia Davila at the 82nd Street Partnership to learn more about this opportunity. Phone (718) 335-9421.
