Dear Fellow New Yorker,

Governor Cuomo is working hard to create jobs for New Yorkers, and this includes making job opportunities and resources available for our state’s youth. Two of the Governor’s initiatives – the NY Youth Works and Summer Jobs programs – are specifically designed to connect our young people with businesses and to help them develop the tools they need to succeed in the workforce.

The NY Youth Works program has already found jobs for 6,000 young New Yorkers and there are still approximately 4,000 opportunities available. Qualified participating youth, aged 16 to 24, can receive additional benefits to help them cover costs of daycare, clothing, transportation, and more to support their success in the workplace. To learn more about the NY Youth Works program and to find out if you qualify, click here or visit a One-Stop Career Center (find a location here).

Through the NY Youth Works program, businesses are also eligible to receive tax credits for hiring unemployed and disadvantaged youth. To find out how your business can apply for certification, click here.

The Governor’s Summer Jobs program will enable more than 18,000 youth, aged 14 and 20, to find employment this summer. To qualify, a participating youth’s family income must be below 200 percent of the federal poverty level (for example, $37,060 for a family of three) or be a recipient of public assistance. Youth interested in participating in the program should contact their local department of social services (find your local department here).

These programs have already helped thousands of young New Yorkers across the state to find jobs.

Please forward this to any individuals or businesses who may be interested in participating in either of these job programs.

To build a new New York, we must invest in the next generation of New Yorkers by creating opportunities for them to thrive.

Let’s help them succeed, together.

The Office of the Governor.
