WorkForce 2000 Enrollment

WorkForce 2000 is designed to help 1199SEIU youth succeed in high school, prepare for college and explore career interests. The program offers a dynamic opportunity for youth leadership and development. It consists of a summer weekday academic experience or work internship, a fall weekend retreat, and Saturday academic sessions at New York University during the school year.  Through volunteer efforts, cultural awareness and social activism, WorkForce 2000 students are at the forefront of creating positive change in their communities.

The Program’s goal is to ensure that youth take the crucial steps toward creating successful high school experiences and making dreams of college and future careers a reality.  WorkForce 2000 students are motivated by sheer discipline. Despite their growing high school workloads and extracurricular school activities, students participate in full-day Saturday academic sessions and in other WorkForce programming throughout the entire school year, as well as for four weeks during the summer.


All students and their parents must attend a mandatory orientation session. Orientation dates are posted each winter. Once the orientation dates are posted, you will be asked to email or call the WorkForce 2000 Hotline at (646) 473-8353 with your preferred orientation date.
