Launched in the late 1970s, NYATEP was founded by a small group of professionals dedicated to collaborating to increase 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. Our members help more than a million New Yorkers achieve good or better jobs through job training, education, economic and workforce development. NYATEP is a membership based, 501c3 non-profit, intermediary that provides leadership, vision, and advocacy for a thriving workforce development network across New York State. 

What We Do


NYATEP provides a voice to the workforce development community by advocating for systems change that will foster and promote economic mobility at the federal, state, and local policy levels.


NYATEP increases the knowledge-base and efficacy of the workforce system by providing best-in-class training to create opportunities for advancement and exposure to evidence based practices that will strengthen and enhance the delivery of services.


NYATEP promotes progress to continuously improve the state's systems and local practice by providing cutting-edge research and piloting initiatives so it is ahead of the curve in providing workforce services.
