Access & Welfare to Careers 2006-2007

Appropriation Level: $1,000,000

Metropolitan College’s Welfare-to-Careers Consortium Program represents a unique collaboration among three major higher educational institutions in New York City (Metropolitan College, Medgar Evers College and Pace University). The goal of the project is to develop and implement a welfare-to-work project that links educational opportunities to internships and job placements. The Consortium affords participants the opportunity to earn their two-year degree or a baccalaureate degree, thereby greatly increasing their chances of gaining permanent, full-time employment at a sustainable salary level.

Hamilton’s College’s ACCESS Pathways Project is a unique academic/social program aimed at assisting low income TANF eligible clients attain equity in education, gain economic security, and become leaders in their communities. Their approach is primarily geared at assisting single mothers in changing their lives on a permanent basis by offering education, employment, social services, legal, psychological and family support.
