10th and 11th grade students -- Are you interested in taking a college class after school next fall? You need a B average overall and good attendance to apply. Applying does not guarantee acceptance.

Deadline to submit application and complete interview is April 27th. Returning students are reminded that they also need to re-apply!
Youth@Work Student Applications: Due to the closure of city hall, students CANNOT drop applications off to their office. They will adjust their deadline date to accommodate for the last two weeks of the applications submission timeframe. Once the office is reopened, a mass email along with notification on all social media outlets will go out to the public regarding their extension. Updates to the application deadline will be posted on the City’s website (www.newhavenct.gov) as well as on our Facebook page (Newhaven YSD). Make note the extension will only be for two weeks as the applications have been available since the first Monday in January of 2020. The Student job fair scheduled for April 15, 2020 has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.
Artspace Summer Apprenticeship Program: Will go on this July! We are still taking applications. This summer, you could be 1 of 20 students to apprentice with graphic designer, Daniel Pizarro, local artist and activist centering the SAP curriculum around the 50th anniversary of New Haven's Black Panther Party Trials. Motivated by the history of the role of art and publishing in liberatory work, apprentices will learn to use digital platforms to creatively express demands for justice and calls to action. If you're a young person with experience or interest in any form of art, activism, and/or community organizing, you are heavily encouraged to apply! Your voice is a crucial part of the conversations that make change. You have the power to move the masses with your message. Use your creative mind to help guide your community toward progress, and do it with a team of young artists just like yourself: eager to advocate, ready to act. Click here to learn more and apply now! Program Dates are July 6 – 24, 2020. The program runs Mondays-Fridays, 1-4pm. All materials, snacks and $175 work stipends provided. 20 New Haven teens will work closely with lead artist Daniel Pizarro to learn how to create art with strong social messages centered around themes that inspired the Black Panther Party and the way they reclaimed narratives through self-publishing. Deadline to apply is May 29, 2020 at 5pm. Students will be notified of acceptance by June 8, 2020. Learn More & Apply HERE.
