The Opportunity Youth (OY): Supported Work Experience is an innovative program that engages low-income New York City young adults aged 16-24 who are disconnected from school and work through short-term paid worksites, placement into jobs, education or advanced training, and follow-up services. This program promotes the skills needed to succeed in today's marketplace.
OY is a 14-week program operated at the administrative office of the Italian American Civil Rights League. OY develops essential workforce skills through a combination of educational workshops, counseling, and short-term (10-12 week) paid worksites that offer structured work opportunities. Upon completion of the worksites, IACRL will provide nine months of follow-up services and help place participants in permanent jobs, training programs, or educational settings.
