Employment Services

At Urban Upbound, we help youth and adults gain and retain meaningful employment in high-growth sectors through job readiness training and one-on-one counseling.

Every year, 5,000 individuals benefit from Urban Upbound’s Employment Service programs. Aligned with the City’s Career Pathways framework, we focus on creating long-term career ladders through sector-focused job readiness preparation (resume assistance, interview practice), vocational training, and one-on-one career and educational counseling services including facilitated job placement services, job retention and career advancement support for 12 months after securing employment, and on-going referrals to a host of coordinated partners for services such as income supports, child care, adult basic education classes, and transportation accommodation. Moreover, we provide college and career access services to high school age youth, including year-round mentoring, SAT and college preparation, financial aid counseling, career readiness, and placement into summer internships.
