Per Scholas Wins NYCETC Award

Per Scholas is very proud to announce that is has been selected to receive a “Middle Skills” Opportunity Award from the New York City Employment & Training Coalition, the premiere advocacy and service network of workforce development providers in New York City. NYCETC members collectively serve more than 700,000 New Yorkers each year.

The Coalition’s award recognizes our efforts to help un- and underemployed New Yorkers develop “middle skills” — those that require more than a high school diploma, but less than a college degree — leading to in-demand jobs and lifelong career development. It will be presented along with five others at NYCETC’s upcoming Opportunity Awards gala reception on June 20.

Per Scholas is deeply gratified by the honor, especially since the award comes from our peers in New York City’s workforce development arena. We look forward to attending the reception on June 20 and urge you to join us. Tickets are $75 for NYCETC members and $100 for everyone else.
