Worker Training and Job Readiness Program

Through our Worker Training and Job Readiness program, we help reduce unemployment among Northern Manhattan communities by providing free OSHA safety and asbestos abatement trainings to local residents. Overall in New York City, construction employment is growing and there are opportunities, especially for NYCHA residents, to work within public housing or external construction companies. NYCHA has a high-need for skilled labor and a mandate to give priority to local residents for these positions.

We are no longer accepting interested participants for this program. For information on future courses, please contact: charles@weact.org, 212-961-1000 ext. 309.
