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.

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.
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.
