Assisting Local Residents with Employment Placement & Training

In September 2016, WHDC collaborated with West Harlem Group Assistance to establish the West Harlem Skills Training Center  located at 500 West 134th Street to assist West Harlem residents with job placement and training. In its first year, job placement rate has been 30%, higher than the norm.

WHDC is a founding member of Pathways-to-Apprenticeship (P2A), a nonprofit organization initiated by Local 79 Laborers Union. P2A has received a direct entry approved by New York State Department of Labor. This will help WHDC to steer local residents into well paying jobs in the unions.
