Henry Street Settlement opens doors of opportunity for Lower East Side residents and other New Yorkers through social services, arts, and health care programs.
Lower East Side Youth Opportunity Hub
An exciting new program – exclusively for 13 to 24 year olds who live, work or attend school on the Lower East Side – opened its doors in October.
The Lower East Side Youth Opportunity Hub is all about success, support and community and offers the following services to young people:
- Help finding a job
- Help returning to school, getting a GED or getting into college
- Mental health support
- Basketball, soccer, baseball and more
- Fun trips and community events
