I Am an Employer
In April, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of concern for the health and safety of all New Yorkers the decision was made to not operate the Ladders for Leaders program this summer. Despite the unfortunate circumstances, the L4L team at Commonpoint Queens continued to provide support to all our applicants. With the help of a generous donation from Cord Meyer and the continued support from our long-lasting and dedicated worksite partners, we were able to place 75 students in 40 different worksites. Our interns’ secured internships in companies like New York Legal Assistance Group, Internationals Network, SHARE Cancer Support, BlackRock, NYS Port Authority, The Paley Center for Media, Urban Green Council, League of Women’s Voters Rights, Queens Chamber of Commerce, Office of NYS Comptroller and the Manhattan DA.
You can help us place more interns with your support! Thanks to QNS for their coverage at https://qns.com/story/2020/06/02/commonpoint-queens-receives-30000-donation-for-summer-youth-internship-program/.
Commonpoint Queens had an amazing summer 2019, placing 485 Ladders for Leaders interns into 173 employment opportunities! Now, we would like you to join us in guiding our Ladders for Leaders applicants by providing valuable internship opportunities.
