BROOKLYN - A program in Bushwick is helping young people find jobs.

"Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow" is a free job program that continues to help young people find employment.

The program teaches students computer technology, public speaking and how to dress professionally.  

The program says that the information will get them to the starting line of their career so they can compete with others in their job search.  

"Recently we added an HTML and coding program," says the program's CEO, Randy Peers. "It's really trying to capitalize on the growth of the tech sector here in New York City."

Many of the program's students are taking part in a program that will get them paid internships.

There are four Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow locations in Brooklyn.
