Young Worker Program

Teens Lead at Work, is NYCOSH’s summer training component of the Young Worker Program. This summer, teens will conduct training for peers on health and safety, and profile young workers.

Learn About NYCOSH’s Teens Lead at Work program from youth trainers (from l to r): Sharone Holloman, Teen Trainer; Vaughnessa Alexander, Teen Leader; Charis Cruz, video director/editor and Teen Trainer.

A major objective, is for Peer Leaders to train young people to also train others about their workplace rights, safety and health. Our program also provides training to teachers, parents and employers on how to protect the safety and health of young workers.
