BNY will be working on a Small Business Education Initiative where they are going to create informative webinars for some of the small businesses at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. 

PDC received information regarding BNY’s External Affairs Department, as they are looking for students to support the businesses in implementing some of the various learning from the webinars since many small companies do not have the time to implement the learning themselves. BNY will be working with 5-10 companies and each company will have one student working with them for a paid 20-40 total hours.
