GCD YA C.N.A Program Intern

The New Jewish Home - New York, NY3.5

Part-time
The New Jewish Home has been a New York eldercare landmark for nearly 170 years, and we’re still creating innovative new ways to serve seniors every day. Our staff is the heart and soul of the work we do. From the compassionate caregivers, therapists, doctors and nurses on each campus to the seasoned administrative teams that help us all to work better together, we offer an unbeatable support system for New York’s elders who rely on us — in their homes and on our campuses — for a tremendous range of services.

The GCD Department is currently seeking Program Interns to join their Young Adult team at their Manhattan campus!

Program Interns will participate in educational training focused on elder care and pre-C N A preparation.
