To join New Haven Works, you must attend an open orientation.


To become a member of New Haven Works please attend one of our orientations which take place the first Saturday of the month at our office, 205 Whitney Ave. Orientations are limited to 25 people and are conducted on a first come / first serve basis. You must bring all required documents (see “What to bring” below) in order to attend orientation. If you do not bring the required documentation, you will not be able to attend an orientation.

The orientation is scheduled to start at 9:00am. However, we will begin once 25 New Haven residents arrive with all appropriate documents. Recently, orientations have filled up by 7:00am, so we suggest you arrive early in order to secure a spot.
