Dear Futures and Options Community, 

Together with the NYC Department of Education and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), we are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 in New York City, and the evolving public health situation. We know that for many this is an anxious and uncertain time, especially for those most vulnerable. 

We have suspended most of our career development programming, including the Internship Program, but our Career Essentials program has been able to continue remotely. Our team is working remotely for now.  Most importantly, we are available by email and phone when you need support and answers to your questions. Our top priority is the health and well-being of our students, staff, and partners. Our programs will return once this crisis has passed, and we will continue to make an impact on the workforce of tomorrow. 

You are in our thoughts, especially the young people of New York City who we serve, and we plan to continue to be a resource to them, to our partners, and to our larger community. 

In light of this unprecedented situation, Futures and Options would like to share the below resources.

We are here for you, and believe the best way to get through this is together.
