  • New York City Administration for Children’s Services
  • WeWork

Upwards of 50 teens spent the evening chatting with volunteers from each company to learn about job and internship opportunities, and were also able to sit one-on-one with professionals to talk through resumes and interview tips.


The evening also included food and raffles of backpacks, an XBOX 360, a Polaroid camera, and several gift cards.


Career Night is just one of many ways The Foundling ensures its youth in care beat the odds and are connected with wrap-around services that empower them for a bright, successful future.
