Through the Learning to Work (LTW) Program the City offers post-secondary education and employment opportunities to students.
LTW is an in-depth job readiness and career exploration program designed to enhance the academic component of select Young Adult Borough Centers and Transfer High Schools. LTW aims to help students overcome obstacles that stand in the way of earning a high school diploma and lead them toward rewarding post-secondary employment and education.
- Academic support
- Career and educational exploration
- Work preparation
- Skills development
To participate, students must be enrolled at one of the Young Adult Borough Centers or Transfer Schools where Learning to Work is offered.
"Transfer High Schools"
Transfer High Schools are small, academically challenging high schools for young adults ages 15 to 21 who are behind on academic credits.
To go to a Transfer High School, you must have completed at least one year in regular high school. Each school sets its own admission requirements and may have additional rules.
