[video] A Win-Win for CSI and Staten Island

November 01, 2016

YouTube Preview ImageThe College of Staten Island (CSI) ipartnering with nine other local groups, including community-based organizations and the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, on a new initiative called the Youth Workforce Initiative Network of Staten Island, also known as “Youth WINS.”

As approximately one in five young adults on Staten Island between the ages of 18 and 24 are out of school and out of work, this program aims to address this large-scale problem in the Borough. The out-of-school, out-of-work statistic rises to an acutely critical one in four on the North Shore, second in the City only to the Bronx. By working with potential employers, Youth WINS partners plan to recruit and educate hundreds of young adults over the next three years with the goal of connecting them to high-demand jobs. It will also provide dynamic programming, including mentorships and internships, for participants.

An all-day event, which took place at both the St. George Library and the CSI Technology Incubator nearby, showcased Youth WINS leadership including Chris Cruz Cullari, Executive Director of the Office of Continuing Education and Professional Development at CSI, as well as Linda Baran, President and CEO of the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce.

“Connecting young adults on Staten Island with support, education, and a career ladder will be just the beginning for students,” commented Cruz Cullari.  “The young adults we serve through Youth WINS will become a part of the economic fabric of New York City, connecting them to a lifetime of opportunities.”
