Getting Your Working Papers

Download your Working Papers Application.

School officials issue all working papers, except for child performer permits.

·         If you are in school, go to your guidance office and ask for a working papers application. If you are not in school, go to the nearest school by where you live because they are required to give you the application.

o    In New York City, all young people in and out of school, must apply at a local public high school office. If you don't know what high school to go to, you can get instructions on where to apply from the New York City Department of Education's District Family Advocates or call 718-935-2000.

·         During school vacation periods, these offices stay open part-time to issue working papers.

1.  Fill out the application and have your parent or guardian sign the application.

2.  When you have filled out the working papers application and had your parent or guardian sign it, you have to take it back to the school's guidance office.

3.  Your employer must keep Student Non-Factory, Student General, Full-Time, and Limited Employment Certificates on file at the place where you work, as long as you keep the job.

4.  You must keep your Farm Work Permits, Model Permits, Newspaper Carrier Permits, and Street Trade Permits in your possession at all times.

Don’t forget to apply pre-K by March 18, 2022! You can apply online at,  by phone at 718-935-2009, or through a Family Welcome Center to find your center visit  .

NYC’s pre-K programs are offered in three different program settings? All settings offer the same full day, high-quality pre-K curriculum to our city’s four-year-old children. You can apply to programs in all settings:

  • New York City Early Education Centers (NYCEECs).  Community-based organizations with early childhood expertise partner with the Department of Education (DOE) to offer pre-K.
  • District schools. Some DOE public elementary schools offer pre-K.
  • Pre-K Centers. These are DOE early childhood centers that only offers grades below kindergarten.

A pre-K program can offer up to three types of pre-K seats:

  • Full Day seats are free and provide early care and education for 6 hours and 20 minutes a day during the school year, typically September to June. All NYC children born in 2018 are eligible for these seats. 
  • Extended Day and Year seats are free or low cost and provide early care and education all year round for up to 10 hours of care a day. Eligibility for these seats is based on family income and needs. If you receive an offer to an Extended Day and Year seat, you will need to confirm your child’s eligibility by completing a Child Care application.
  • Head Start seats are free and provide early care and education all year round for up to 10 hours a day. Eligibility for Head Start is based on family income and needs. If you receive an offer to a Head Start seat, the program will work with you directly to confirm your child’s eligibility.

What is Thrive?

The Thrive Initiative is being developed through a collaboration between the Department of Defense’s Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy (DoD MC&FP) and the Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness at Penn State (Clearinghouse).

The aim of Thrive is to create a series of developmentally-comprehensive, evidence-informed, universal and targeted parenting programs for military and civilian families. The Thrive Initiative seeks to harness parents’ potential for fostering holistic, community youth development and resiliency throughout childhood and adolescence by focusing on practices and strategies that help to nurture the parent-child relationship and foster positive child development outcomes.
