New York Youth Jobs Program
A Pathway to Success
Job and Career Training Opportunities for Young New Yorkers

First launched in 2012, the goal of the New York Youth Jobs Program is to help young people entering the world of work have a successful start. Participants receive critical workforce skills that will serve them well into their careers, and participating businesses receive tax credits upwards of $7,500 per eligible hire. Initially limited to 13 target areas, the program was re-authorized through 2022 and expanded statewide.
