Summer Senior Employment Program

ReServe & West Harlem Development Corporation are pleased to announce the return of SSEP for its 5th Year!

 

For the 5th consecutive summer, ReServe, Inc. and West Harlem Development Corporation are pleased to announce the return of the Summer Seniors Employment Program (SSEP). SSEP connects residents of West Harlem, age 55+, with rewarding, part-time summer employment opportunities at nonprofit organizations throughout New York City. This is a unique opportunity for participants and hosting work sites alike. Participants utilize their existing talents and/or learn new skills while earning a modest stipend, and hosting nonprofits engage participants for 120 hours each at no cost.

 


This is a great opportunity for Seniors to get involved and stay active in their community…I have been doing this for 5 years and it is a program that provides work opportunity that is sustainable, gives credibility and a modest stipend to our Seniors who have contributed to their communities and want to continue to do so.
— Caroline St. Ange, Account Manager, ReServe New York

 

Since 2013, West Harlem Development Corporation has employed senior citizens through our Summer Seniors Employment Program (SSEP). These participants lend their skills to help high-impact service projects in West Harlem, and nonprofits gain fully-funded, valuable workers that help further their mission. SSEP started with 60 seniors in 2013, and continues to advance with each year.

WHDC promotes increased economic opportunities and quality of life to sustain a vibrant West Harlem community. ReServe, Inc., a subsidiary of Fedcap Rehabilitative Services, is an innovative nonprofit that places professionals age 55+ with nonprofits and government agencies that need their expertise.
