New 42 Youth Corps
The Youth Corps is composed of three different tracks to meet students where they are academically and professionally, and to serve New York City with a diverse, creative pipeline of young talent.
New Victory Usher Corps
At New Victory, students ages 16-19 can apply to join the Usher Corps, a rigorous three-year program that offers flexible paid employment, life skills workshops, a supportive team of young adults from across the city and opportunities to see live theater from around the world.

As a New Victory Usher I received academic and career guidance, gained work experience, and made valuable friendships. Now, as a New 42 Fellow I get to see first hand how this fast-paced industry works and be part of the important decisions that keep it running.”
