The Geriatrics Career Development program helps New York City youth pursue careers in health care. This program annually helps 225 New York City youth from under-resourced schools in the Bronx and Manhattan pursue careers in health care. The program trains high school students to become health-care professionals with a focus on serving older adults. As part of the program, youth work directly with older adults in long-term care through paid internships, mentorship, and clinical training. Youth can earn up to five allied health-care certifications, so they can immediately find work and earn income while in college. Ninety-nine percent of the students in the program graduate high school and more than 150 have graduated from college. Learn more.
