As 2015 comes to a close, please consider supporting BronxWorks as you plan your year-end donations.  Your generosity will directly benefit programs that assist working age adults to find employment. BronxWorks employment programs include youth career education programs, job skills training and placement services, internship programs, and workforce assistance specifically tailored to struggling parents. BronxWorks also offers employment assistance to individuals that reside in our shelters.

Looking forward to the new year, BronxWorks hopes to expand our employment services even further, reaching a wider range of Bronx residents with comprehensive and informed workforce development programming. Continued support from our friends and partners is essential to translating these goals into concrete reality.  We are excited to continue working with BronxWorks supporters to help Bronx residents establish financially healthy futures.

Meet Manuel. 

Manuel was a member of the BronxWorks  Young Adult Internship Program.  Immediately after graduating from the Urban Assembly Academy four years ago, he entered the work force.  Manuel did not enjoy his job, but he was quite devastated when he suddenly became unemployed.  Manuel met with a social worker during what he described as a very tough time in his life.  He learned of BronxWorks and YAIP.  Today Manuel is enrolled at Borough of Manhattan Community College studying Communications.

"When I concluded the Young Adult Internship Program, I was hired by Swiss Post Solutions. I felt that I had become a much stronger and better person coming out of the program. I felt that I was finally able to go after my goals and take on the world. I am forever grateful to BronxWorks for choosing me to be a part of the program," says Manuel.

At BronxWorks, we are committed to lifting lives and building futures.  Helping young adults and working-age adults finish their education and accomplish their goals is essential to our mission and the work that we do.  

Your generosity will assist BronxWorks as we live our mission to help individuals and families improve their economic and social well-being.  From toddlers to seniors, we feed, shelter, teach, and support our neighbors to build a stronger community.
