To support a Career and Education Pathways Access Coordinator for the GrandLo Cafe at Essex Crossing, a new nonprofit social enterprise job training program. The program will serve 60 “opportunity youth” every year, youth who face steep barriers to future achievement due to poor educational attainments, etc. The youth will receive training in hard and soft skills and comprehensive supportive services to help them overcome difficult life circumstances, helping them reduce their respective barriers to long-term employment. The Coordinator will guide the youth in creating an individual Career and Education Pathways Plan, and track the participants’ progress during and after the program to gauge the program’s effectiveness and to provide further support if necessary. Grand Street Settlement provides comprehensive educational programs and social services to people of all ages residing on the Lower East Side in Manhattan, and Williamsburg and Bushwick in Brooklyn.
