Office of Workforce Development
Because all NYS youth deserve the chance to make it on their own.
OWD prepares NYS youth for the demands of today's workplace by designing and implementing programs that teach the skills, attitudes and behaviors employers expect.
OWD is situated in the OCFS home office in Rensselaer. From this location, OWD is strategically located to partner with those agencies and programs most likely to assist youth to transition to their home communities from facility placement, as well as address the employment needs of the general target population.
