Welfare to Careers Project

The Education Welfare to Careers Project is a nationally replicable program, developed by The Education and Work Consortium, which links a college education to work experience and career development with the ultimate aim of permanently lifting welfare recipients out of poverty. The Consortium is a unique collaboration between Metropolitan College of New York, Pace University and Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York. Drawing on the broad and varied resources of its three member institutions, participants are offered a variety of educational opportunities and prepared for sustainable careers that will provide sufficient income to support a family. Graduates of the program, empowered with increased earning potential, will become ongoing contributors to the economy.

Participants are offered a full array of support services that will help them stay in school and remain on the job:

  • Student Advisement & Tutorial Services
  • Transportation Assistance
  • Career Counseling
  • Job Placement Services

All potential candidates will be fully screened for eligibility requirements:

  • New York City residency
  • US Citizenship (or a non-citizen meeting TANF qualifications)
  • Family includes a minor child or pregnant woman; non-custodial parents must also provide certain information related to child support.
  • Family income under 200% of the federal poverty level
