RIWI staff, pilot grads and ACS partners


Active partner engagement is central to the success of RIWI. Industry leadership groups, representatives from public and private infrastructure sectors, unions, and community organizations have been integral to shaping the program. They have helped identify gap areas in infrastructure and workforce development, provided vital feedback to the RIWI team during the launch of the program, and partnered with us to recruit participants and develop new career pathways into infrastructure fields.

Our partners include:

NYC Administration for Children's Services: ACS and RIWI partnership began in summer 2022, when 15 ACS summer interns got the opportunity to learn about urban infrastructure in our pilot program. Some of those interns are pictured above, along with ACS Commissioner Jess Dannhauser, Assistant Commissioner Raymond Singleton, and members of the RIWI program and instructor teams.

NYC Economic Development Corporation: EDC and RIWI have partnered to explore potential internships for RIWI students focusing on data analysis of infrastructure-related issues in New York.

Association for Energy Affordability: AEA and RIWI have partnered to develop internships that prepare participants for jobs in energy audits, NYC compliance, commissioning and retro-commissioning, plans, and specifications, electrification, and property assessments.

Living Redemption Opportunity Hub: Living Redemption has partnered with RIWI from the outset to develop a pipeline of participants from communities traditionally underrepresented in infrastructure fields.
