Takiyah Weekes

New York City Department of Education - Offoce of Postsecondary Readiness, Early College and Career Schools
Director of Career Readiness
333 7th Avenue, NY NY 10001
I work at the NYC Department of Education’s OPSR as the Early College and Career Schools Director of Career Readiness to provide coaching to 9-14 schools to help build out their Work-based Learning spectrum of yearly goals and activities, develop systems to track students’ skills development and assist with the strategic planning needed for implementation. With over 13 years in workforce development and an MPA in Nonprofit Management from CUNY Baruch College, more recently as the Director of Youth Employment Services at the Henry Street Settlement, I have worked tirelessly to prepare students ages 17-24 with critical thinking and job readiness skills and empower them to transition to higher education, employment and ultimate self-sufficiency.
