JumpStart NYC a FREE educational program to help unemployed
ABOUT THE PROGRAM: JumpStart NYC is a FREE educational program to help unemployed, experienced business professionals find new career paths by re-tooling them to work at smaller firms, as consultants and/or in new industries. The next JumpStart NYC bootcamp begins on April 16 – 27, 2012, (Monday – Friday) including a “green/sustainability” track providing supplemental information on the “green/sustainable” businesses in New York City for participants who are interested in joining New York City’s exciting “green/sustainable” community. A key element of the program matches participants for a ten to twelve-week pro-bono consulting project (referred to as a “consulting fellowship”). The project enables you to develop new skills, while enabling the project companies to leverage talent and gain insights from an extremely experienced pool of talent.
DATES: The dates for the next JumpStart NYC classroom session are Monday – Friday, April 16-27, 2012, with the projects commencing in the middle of May, and continuing for ten to twelve weeks (half-time). The bootcamp takes place at the SUNY Global Center, 116 East 55th Street (between Park and Lexington), New York, NY. Please apply on line at: http://www.Levin.SUNY.edu/jumpstartnyc/participant
