The Career and Workforce development pages aims to serve our current students as well as our alumni with its resources via networking and internship opportunities, job site and college visits, and through our Alumni Career Fair.

Our goal is to continue our standard of preparing students for life and citizenship after The Neighborhood Academy, and to create a pipeline for our students to utilize as a path toward meaningful job opportunities within the workforce.


As part of our mission to break the cycle of generational poverty, workforce development is a significant antipoverty strategy, and our workforce development program is stronger than ever.  While it is often stated that college is not for everyone, at The Neighborhood Academy, we encourage four-year degrees that lead to a trajectory of success.
