The Door is an unparalleled model for youth development, offering a comprehensive range of integrated services within a single site for nearly 10,000 New York City youth each year. Our mission is to empower young adults to reach their full potential by providing comprehensive youth development services in a diverse and caring environment. At The Door, youth can access health care and education, mental health counseling and crisis assistance, legal assistance, college preparation services, career development, housing supports, arts, sports and recreational activities, and nutritious meals – all for free and under one roof. By providing participants with our suite of integrated services, we seek to provide any motivated young person with the tools, resources, and opportunities needed to successfully transition to adulthood.
The goal of The Door’s Career and Education Services Department is to support young people in completing secondary education and successfully transitioning into post-secondary education and employment. Programs within the Career and Education Services Department (CareerED) are designed to help young people, who are in school, out-of-school and out-of work, to assess, set, and obtain their educational and career goals. CareerED services specifically allow a young person to craft a personalized life plan defining the steps they will take to achieve those goals while developing the necessary skills for future life success and independence.
The Career Advancement Coach is responsible for providing intensive support, mentoring, coaching, and case management services to assist Bronx Youth Center participants to successfully move up an education and occupation ladder towards economic self-sufficiency. Specifically, the Career Advancement Coach will help young adults earn their High School Equivalency degree, enroll college, and/or obtain internships, jobs and advanced occupational skills training as well as provide retention support services after a young person is placed in college or employment. In this capacity, the Career Advancement Coach will be the primary point person for the young person during the duration of their participation at The Bronx Youth Center working closely with instructors, learning strategists, internship, college, and job placement staff at The Bronx Youth Center to ensure the young person is meeting their career and education goals.
