About Us

Mission 

First Workings is a nonprofit organization helping students from underserved and underrepresented communities in NYC build social capital, broaden their horizons, and enable social-economic mobility.


Our organization, team, and values

First Workings is a small, but thriving, organization with big impact and an engaged and committed Founder and Board. Founded in 2014, we’ve worked with over 250 students connecting them to industry leaders across NYC, such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, PJT Partners, Mount Sinai Hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital, KPMG, Bandier, White & Case, Mintz Levin, Ogilvy, and many more. Our program includes workplace readiness training, placement in competitive internships or mentorships, and comprehensive support to participants and alumni in an effort to help students foster professional relationships. 100% of our students go on to college, many of them at the top institutions in the US. 


We’re passionate about working with young people, building and working in close relationships, being flexible and supportive, adapting with feedback, and having fun. Our office environment is casual and collaborative, yet hardworking. We strongly encourage innovation with an ability and willingness to adopt new ideas and processes suggested by all team members.
