NYC 2017 LGBT Career Fair

Whether you’re looking for a job, support with transitioning in the workplace or information on job training options, The Center can help you achieve your professional goals. Our career development programs are tailored to the unique needs of LGBT job-seekers.

TGNC CAREER SUPPORT

Discrimination places transgender and gender nonconforming communities at high risk of poverty, unemployment, underemployment, and homelessness. To directly combat this inequality, The Center offers programs focusing on career exploration, access and advancement, all tailored to the unique needs and challenges of the trans and gender non-conforming community.

We offer:

  • Individualized Career Coaching
  • Case Management and Client Navigation
  • Career and Leadership Development Groups
  • Career Exploration Events
  • Legal Workshops
  • Networking Opportunities

RESOURCE CENTER

The Center is your one-stop shop for all things LGBT. Whether you’re a New Yorker looking for additional services and support, a visitor to our great city searching for LGBT-friendly businesses, or a professional seeking opportunities or training, The Center is here for you.

GENERAL RESOURCES

The Center provides a vast array of resources that complement our core service areas—Recovery, Wellness, Family, and Youth—so that you can seek additional support, service, and connection when and where you need it.

NYC RESOURCES

As one of the most diverse cities in the world, NYC offers a tremendous range of resources for our LGBT community and members of the community visiting from both near and far. Many of these listings are LGBT-owned and operated, all are LGBT-friendly and some are not LGBT at all, but are conveniently located!

PROFESSIONAL RESOURCES

To ensure that professionals have access to the training they desire to better serve their clients and our community, The Center provides opportunities for professionals in the form of internships and other training.

ALL PROFESSIONAL RESOURCES

INTERNSHIPS

The Center is proud to offer field placement educational opportunities for up to 30 social work (MSW), counseling (MHC), marriage and family therapy (MFT), psychology (Ph.D., Psy-D) and addiction (CASAC-T) students seeking to work with the LGBT communities. Placements are available in multiple program areas.

Internship placements are to be no less than 18 to 22 hours per week and two semesters in duration, as follows:

  • February to August—usually Advanced Standing or similar social work students
  • June to December—open to students from all practice areas
  • September to May—usually second year or similar social work students

The Center’s internship program seeks to improve the health and well-being of the LGBT communities by:

  1. Increasing The Center’s internal capacity and allowing The Center to better meet expanding community health needs
  2. Increasing the capacity of health services in the New York metropolitan area to serve the LGBT community by training culturally competent future providers
  3. Increasing the pool of potential future staff by developing strong relationships with student providers that may, in the future, seek to work at The Center

To find out more about internships or to set up an appointment, email internships@gaycenter.org.

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING

For clinicians who practice in a city as diverse as New York, access to culturally sensitive training resources is essential.

The Center has been providing technical assistance to community-based organizations, service providers, and government providers locally, regionally and nationally in a variety of disciplines since our inception in the 1980s. The Center Training Institute offers specialized training sessions and technical assistance for professionals who work with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in the New York City area. Our workshops have been carefully developed to offer important information, resources, and creative clinical skills to help you enhance the lives of your LGBT clients.

The Center is a New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) approved provider of Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

The Center Training Institute offers two onsite series of trainings each year in fall and spring. All trainings require a $20 registration fee for students and $60 for professionals. To register or for more information, contact Katharine Kelley at kkelley@gaycenter.org.

In addition to the onsite Center Training Institute, in some instances workshops can be offered offsite to the government, medical, educational, substance abuse recovery and social service providers, as well as at conferences, forums and training institutes.
