The Henry Street Settlement delivers a wide range of social service and arts programming to more than 50,000 New Yorkers each year. Distinguished by a profound connection to its neighbors, a willingness to address new problems with swift and innovative solutions, and a strong record of accomplishment, Henry Street challenges the effects of urban poverty by helping families achieve better lives for themselves and their children.
JOB PLACEMENT AND TRAINING:
Long recognized for developing innovative models for job readiness and training, Henry Street has been helping its neighbors prepare for and secure employment for more than 30 years. In 2003, the agency was pleased to be able to bring these programs under one roof with the establishment of the Workforce Development Center (WDC).
Located in the heart of the Lower East Side business district, the WDC offers a comprehensive range of job training, placement and retention services for adults, out-of-school youth, public assistance recipients and small-business owners. The center is open five days a week, with daytime and evening course offerings.
