Scholars at Work is an innovative collaboration of the NYC Workforce Investment Board, NYC Department of Small Business Services and NYC Department of Education, and is managed by the Workforce1 Transportation Career Center, which is operated by Grant Associates. The program provides high school seniors from New York City Career and Technical Education High School programs with career exploration opportunities, workplace preparation, and 14-week internships within the transportation sector. In addition, full-time job placement services are available to students upon graduation.
