Bridge to Education, Training and Advancement

The Bridge to Education, Training and Advancement (BETA) Academy is an innovative educational and workforce development partnership between Medgar Evers College and the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD). It was established to help out-of-school youth between the ages of 16-21 prepare for the workforce by providing occupational skills training in Graphic Design, academic support in preparation for the General Equivalency Diploma (GED) exam, job placement and paid internship opportunities. Students also receive assistance with completing college admissions and financial aid applications and preparation for the CUNY Skills exam. Students are also provided with the opportunity to participate in the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). All services are provided to students at no cost.
