Thanks Jes for your question - that's one of the issues I have been struggling with - how to induce companies to use this versus classified ads, personal networks, etc. to fill positions. It's definitely something I want to give more thought and though this idea did not progress to the next stage, I still welcome feedback from the community!

Sergio, this was a great idea and though I ran out of time to contribute, I enjoyed the conversations and energy that it elicited. I hope it's pursued beyond this space!

It can be any NYC student, not just art students. I was just providing one example of a community organization that benefited from the student employees perspective and skills. Other types of community-based organizations participate as well.

As for an enduring relationship, it's a 6-week summer job but some of the youth employees have remain engaged with the organization in one way or another. And it's good, paid experience for their resumes.
