NEW Programs



 
Industries and Jobs

NEW is New York City's top training program for women in the trades. After completing NEW's curriculum, graduates enter local apprenticeships and begin nontraditional jobs in the building and construction trades, the utilities and transportation fields, or facilities maintenance and repair.

Skilled blue-collar work is an excellent choice for women who are fit—or ready to get in shape—and who like active, physically challenging work. It offers high wages (journey-level wages can be as high
as $45 per hour);excellent medical benefits; pensions, annuities, and paid vacation time; and the opportunity for further education.
