New York Drives helps students obtain their driver’s licenses while providing professional development workshops. Our program is six weeks long, with the first three weeks focusing on strengthening students’ professional development skills, and the last three weeks focusing on part-time driving lessons. After successfully passing their road tests, graduates enroll into one of BWI’s sector-based training programs leading to skilled employment, or are placed directly into jobs. Once a year, New York Drives offers security guard training where graduates obtain their security guard certificates and license. All programs include two years of job placement assistance and trainees receive ongoing social supports through Single Stop.
