The Wildcat mission is similar to what we believe in. It’s being able to offer people something which they may not be able to have otherwise…getting people back into the workforce.
Wildcat provides job opportunities and resources for New Yorkers to become economically independent. Since our pioneering founding in 1972, Wildcat has helped hundreds of thousands of unemployed and underemployed New Yorkers find jobs, build careers, and receive the training and guidance necessary to compete in the New York economy. For many of our customers, the right opportunity or second chance can mean everything.
A BIRD'S EYE VIEW
Wildcat offers dedicated services and support for people at all stages of the employment process – from preparing for work to finding jobs and advancing careers. We are a certified teacher of the National Work Readiness Credential.
Our innovative initiatives serve multiple social needs. Wildcat's Neighborhood Improvement Project, for example, preserves communities hit by foreclosures, in addition to creating jobs.
We have diverse programs in all five boroughs spanning youth programming, social enterprise, adult job placement programs and the Bronx Workforce1 Career Center.
We build strong relationships with major businesses such as Best Buy, the Wildlife Conservation Society, Alliance Building Services and UPS. Don’t take our word: hear straight from our employers.
Longstanding public-sector partnerships with both New York state and city agencies back our reputation as a committed workforce partner.
Our large-scale service capacity distinguishes us from peers. Sometimes bigger can be better – but we can meet the needs of small businesses, too.
Wildcat's results-driven leadership is relentlessly focused on maximizing our impact.
