The youth of New York need more opportunities

Progressives Educating New Yorkers (PENYERS) was formed to address the serious challenges standing between many young people and stable, rewarding careers

Obstacles to progress

Youth still looking for a job
Youth in New York City drop out of High school
Every year two-thirds, or close to 100,000, of the young applicants to the city-sponsored summer jobs program are turned away empty-handed

Want to help people make real progress, real fast?

There are numerous ways you can support our innovative job training and placement program serving the youth of New York.

PENYERS’ vision is that all youth in our communities are resilient and therefore deserve the resources, support, and skills to thrive and nurture the next generations.
