WHDC’s West Harlem Skills Training Center manages the Summer Senior Employment Program (SSEP). Since 2013, our summer program has placed hundreds of older West Harlem residents (55+ years) in part-time, stipend-paid positions at local nonprofits and public agencies. SSEP gives participants the opportunity to contribute meaningful service to their communities and help under-resourced organizations meet staffing gaps.
SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS: For Summer 2021, it is WHDC’s continued priority to ensure the health and safety of our seniors. All safety protocols are incorporated into SSEP activities including: social distancing, regular cleaning/sanitizing, and masks are required.
Accepted applicants will provide payroll information and be matched to employment opportunities available for our senior residents.
Each eligible participant will earn $15 an hour for up to 120 hours within the program period.
