Summer Senior Employment Program (SSEP)

After a very productive five-year collaboration with ReServe – Fedcap, WHDC is happy to announce that our West Harlem Skills Training Center will solely manage our Summer Senior Employment Program (SSEP).┬áSince 2013, our summer program has placed older residents of West Harlem in part-time, stipend-paid positions contributing a meaningful service to their communities and helping under resourced nonprofits to meet staffing gaps.

For each of the past two summers, WHSTC has proudly afforded positions to over 100 West Harlem Seniors. WHDC pays each participant $15 an hour for up to 120 hours between July thru September.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Be 55+ years old
  • Live in West Harlem
  • Available to work for up to 120 hours

The application period for Summer 2019 has closed. For more information, contact the WHSTC Manager, Jose Martinez at 646-518-4760 x301 or send an email to
