FEGS helps people at all levels – entering or returning to the workforce – overcome their barriers, find a job and achieve economic independence. We assist job seekers to navigate their employment and career paths; strengthen their technology skills; and prepare for success in the workplace. We also partner with employers and the business community to find the best match of qualified candidates to employment opportunities.
Last year, FEGS programs helped more than 9,570 New Yorkers find work. We engaged thousands more in work internships that provided meaningful on-the-job experience. Our employment model is business and sector focused, locally informed and client-centric. We leverage significant relationships with thousands of employers to develop jobs in high-growth sectors and in-demand occupations, while simultaneously implementing best practices to meet the needs of individuals at every level of job readiness.
