Remember those days of summer camp? AMA New York is bringing summer camp to YOU -- our Virtual Career Readiness Summer Camp! This interactive, virtual summer program will provide you with the support and tools you need to discover and leverage your professional strengths, feel confident during your job search, and become a top applicant and candidate.

Professional career experts will guide 30 campers through a five-week, intensive program of hands-on workshops with best-practices, actionable insights, and best of all, a toolkit of templates to facilitate your job search. You will also get support from the other campers through our buddy program and virtual themed happy hours filled with icebreakers and team-building activities.

By the end of summer camp, you’ll feel ready to confidently search and interview for your dream job! Intrigued? Join us for this unique skill-building experience to learn, grow, and make meaningful connections.



Let’s Buddy Up! Starting the week of July 6, campers will be paired up to keep each other accountable and motivated. Buddies will stay in touch to support each other in reaching their goals. At the beginning of each week, they will meet to brainstorm, reshape weekly goals, and create a plan to achieve them.
