What We Do
We create professional mobility through training, networking and pathways to employment.
For the communities we serve, limited access to professional resources and support has often led to a significant barrier in career mobility for its residents. Local, accessible job services are essential in providing often marginalized individuals with access to opportunity, fostering economic equity and prosperity within their neighborhoods as a result.
Restoration’s team of dedicated Placement Specialists provide tailored, one-on-one guidance to Central Brooklyn residents to better meet their individual needs and create their own pathways toward career success. We are committed to enhancing career mobility through education and facilitating meaningful professional connections, empowering individuals to find fulfilling jobs and contribute to their communities.
Our ultimate goal is to increase the percentage of Brooklyn residents pursuing advanced education and training and securing career track employment opportunities that allow one to live in NYC and pursue financial goals.
At Restoration, our team of Placement Specialists are dedicated to meeting clients where they are. Whether you’re looking to grow in your current role or explore a different career path altogether, our team is equipped with the tools and insights to help you achieve your professional goals. From webinars to one-on-one counseling sessions, our services give you the opportunity to learn new skills, connect with like minded professionals, and set in place the steps you need to support your career goals, whether it’s growing professionally or building a team effectively.
We’re dedicated ensuring you have the knowledge and resources to feel empowered when you apply and interview for jobs. A member of our team will walk you through resume and interview tips to highlight your unique strengths and qualifications for the position you want.
We help you access the skills, training and education you need to land and advance in a career that will both fulfill you but also allow you to live comfortably and save. We offer in house trainings and partner with a range of service providers to ensure our community can develop the skills they need to compete and advance in careers.
We’re committed to helping clients and employer partners grow professionally and build teams effectively. Our specialists will walk you through and set in place the microsteps needed to support your career goals and hone in on the right qualities in people to optimize company success.

Restoration has partnered with The Marcy Lab School to launch the Breakthrough Technology Fellowship, a 12-week pilot program designed to train New Yorkers with prior programming or computer science experience for competitive, full-time software engineering roles. The program follows a robust curriculum focused on career fluency, racial identity development, and 1:1 coaching.
So far, fellows have started full-time tech jobs at companies including The New York Times, Asana, WW, Democracy Works, and Bevy.
