Goddard Riverside’s Learning to Work program is located at Edward A. Reynolds West Side High School, a transfer school for students who have faced challenges in other schools or are at risk of not graduating. The program supports students to reengage with school, overcome barriers to attendance and stay on track to get their diplomas. It helps them develop a concrete plan for work or further study after graduating. It also offers paid internships to help them build their resumes and establish good work habits.   

Goddard Riverside Learning to Work forms a continuum with our other youth programs to ensure that no-one falls through the cracks and everyone reaches their maximum potential.

We are always looking for businesses to partner with. Our interns work in every sector of the economy, from for-profit to nonprofit and retail to government. An internship coordinator works with each business partner to ensure the partnership is productive for both sides. Internship salaries are paid by the program, so there is no cost to the business.
