WHO WE ARE
Launched in the late 1970’s, NYATEP was founded by a small group of professionals dedicated to the effectiveness of federally funded workforce programs. In the last 40 years, the organization has grown to be New York’s statewide workforce development association.
NYATEP provides the leadership, vision and advocacy for a thriving workforce development network across New York State. We excel at understanding the facets of the workforce community, as our membership spans the State’s 33 local workforce development boards, the State and City community college systems, literacy providers, community-based organizations, local governments, labor unions, economic development agencies, and career and technical education providers, among others.
Collectively, our membership affects the lives of over a million New Yorkers and thousands of businesses across New York State.
