For Teens 14 to 17 years of age
The WorkForce 2000 program (WF2) is a yearlong academic program designed to help 1199SEIU teenagers meet the challenges of high school, prepare for college and make informed career choices.
WorkForce 2000 begins with a summer experience that offers students the option of daily academic classes at New York University, or if eligible, a work internship in one of many professional settings throughout the New York Metropolitan area. During the school year, students participate in a weekend retreat and attend Saturday academic classes that are held at New York University.
Additional program components include: college/career exploration, health awareness workshops, professional development seminars, cultural arts events, and community service projects. For parents whose children are currently enrolled in WorkForce 2000, please click here for important information.
