High School Workforce Development Program

NY Sun Works’ High School Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) Farming Certification Program launched in Summer 2022. The program, developed with support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is the first of its kind in NYC and provides high school students with marketable tech-
nical skills to participate in a growing sector of the green economy as well as transferable workforce readiness skills. The certification program prepares students to either enter the market directly after graduation through a job or internship, or continue with further training in a post secondary academic program. This program is now available as both a summer intensive and as a semester long course beginning January 2023.
