Did you know 61% of NYCDOE CTE Students Identify as Black/African American and that CTE can be used as a major driver of equity in the workforce.
A recent study from the Brookings Institution found that white college graduates hold seven times the wealth of Black graduates. These gaps also exist in the workforce, where African Americans comprise 12 percent of all working Americans but represent only 7 percent of those employed in the 10 highest-paying, middle-skill jobs.
Our goal is to level the playing field for all students, allowing them access to high quality CTE programs in New York City High Schools to eliminate these gaps.
