The focus of CNY Works Youth Services is to engage our 14-21 year old participants in a variety of educational enrichment activities that will enable them to make better educational and occupational decisions and help prepare them for careers, not just entry-level jobs.


Our mission is to place as many youth as possible in appropriate, meaningful jobs in safe settings, while providing exceptional supports, academic enrichment and opportunities to gain marketable skills; and to provide the community and businesses a view of our local emerging workforce at its best.
