We empower New York City's underserved youth to explore careers through career development and paid, mentored internships. We reach out to teens at a formative time of their lives, guiding them to further their education and become contributing citizens.


The Futures and Options Internship Program provides New York City students with critical work-readiness training and the opportunity to gain firsthand work experience as interns with a dynamic range of business partners. At the same time, the Internship Program introduces these business partners to a pipeline of promising, motivated and diverse young men and women who make meaningful contributions to their business, while training to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Futures and Options interns work in paid, mentored internships that best match their skills and interests. After submitting the online application, applicants interview with Futures and Options program coordinators. Applicants who are accepted into the Internship Program will also interview with supervisors at our business partners for specific internship positions. In some cases, applicants may interview at several businesses for different internship opportunities.
