Bronx Youth Center
The Bronx Youth Center, the first satellite location run by The Door, provides comprehensive employment and education programming to 500 young people every year between the ages of 16 and 24.
Located in the South Bronx at 424 East 147th Street, the Bronx Youth Center is here for any young person who is looking for help preparing for a job or for their academic future. Our wide range of programs are available to any young adult, regardless of your current school or working status. We’ll help you set goals and get on the path to success. All of our BYC programs are free – you just need to join by attending one of intake sessions. Intake sessions are held on Tuesdays at 2 p.m.
There are four major categories of programs that we offer:
High School Equivalency (HSE, also known as GED) and Education Supports
Ready for the next step in your education? We can help you get your high school or college diploma, help you transition to and succeed in college, and more. No matter where you last left off with school, we can help you. Visit our HSE & Education page to learn more!
Jobs, Internships & Work Training
Looking to reach your greatest potential? We’ve got so much more than job placement – we’ll help you explore different career paths and gain the skills to help you find and KEEP the right job. Visit our Jobs & Work Training page to learn more!
Support for Systems-Involved Youth
If you have been or are currently homeless, in the foster care system, or involved in the juvenile justice system, we have several special programs to help you achieve your goals. We know that obstacles like these can set you back – but we’re determined to give you the boost you need to get ahead. Visit our Systems-Involved Youth page to learn more!
