The program offered courses in reading, writing, and mathematics and ran the Works Project Program training unemployed and out-of-school youth as well as the Student Aid Program paying for work study for students in high schools, colleges, and graduate programs. N.Y.A. programs were open to U.S. citizens between the ages of sixteen and twenty-five who could show financial need.
