The Bridge's Vocational Services Program helps New Yorkers with disabilities prepare to enter or re-enter the workforce. We partner with a wide variety of New York City employers, providing them with access to a large pool of diverse applicants who are trained and supported by Bridge staff.  

The Bridge trains applicants in:

  • Mailroom and Messenger Services
  • Food Service
  • Hospitality
  • Retail 
  • Office/Reception Services

Our Approach

The Bridge's Vocational Services Program provides training, support, and skill-building opportunities to all participants. After training is complete, participants are referred to appropriate employers for interviews. When an applicant is hired, The Bridge will provide ongoing support and post-placement counseling to the employee to ensure successful job retention.

Employers who hire through The Bridge’s Vocational Services Program may be eligible for tax credits. Please contact our Vocational Services Department at 212-663-3000 x1413 to learn more about partnering with The Bridge.
