Henry Street Settlement opens doors of opportunity for Lower East Side residents and other New Yorkers through social services, arts, and health care programs.
Henry Street offers an array of services for individuals seeking employment. Our Workforce Development Center (WDC) provides the tools and resources needed to complete a successful job search. This program is also available for non-fluent English speakers, along with ESL classes.
We also offer specific employment and training services to people living in the Lillian Wald and Jacob Riis Houses as part of our Jobs Plus program.
For employers seeking qualified entry- and mid-level workers, the WDC offers Customized Staffing Services to meet your hiring needs — at no cost to the employer.
Henry Street has several programs for youth seeking employment, including the Summer Youth Employment Program and the Young Adult Internship Program. The WDC services are also available to out-of-school, out-of-work youth ages 18 to 24.
