Hard Skills Training

Henry Street Settlement’s Employment Services team understands that education and training lead to new employment opportunities and career pathways. The legacy of our founder, Lillian Wald, includes not only training and deploying nurses in the early 1900s. She was also a workforce development pioneer who helped find work for those who needed it, even employing her patient’s family members as seamstresses to sew buttons on nurses’ uniforms. In the past, Employment Services has offered hard skills training programs from bicycle repair to housekeeping. Today many employers require specific certifications for certain jobs, and we aim to equip our clients with access to high-demand certifications.  All of our employment services are here to support our members in achieving their career goals, providing in-house training or referrals to the training necessary to reach these goals.
