Welcome To City Access New York

City Access New York promotes lifelong access to educational, vocational and cultural programs for New Yorkers of all abilities. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that identifies barriers to participation in schools and in the community and adapts the content and delivery of programs to the diverse needs of people with disabilities. 



Liam’s ambitions came to fruition due to the Career Discovery Program (CDP) at City Access New York. Liam admires Japanese culture and presently majors in dramatic arts in school and desired a job backstage in a theater. CDP discovered a perfect match that blends Liam’s passion for theater and Japanese culture. The program’s dorm proximity provides the accessibility that Liam requires. The duties include wardrobe assistance, visitor services, and acting support for the program.
