Non-Traditional Employment for Women (NEW)

Learn more about how our grantee NEW is paving new pathways to employment for New Yorkers.

Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW) prepares, trains, and places women in careers in the skilled construction, utility, and maintenance trades, helping women achieve economic independence and a secure future for themselves and their families. At the same time, NEW provides a pipeline of qualified workers to the industries that build, move, power, green, and maintain New York.

Robin Hood partners with NEW to support its pivotal work of preparing more women of color from low-income communities for unionized apprenticeships in the building trades.
