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 30-hour OSHA safety, solar photovoltaic installation, and other job training 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 when hiring for these positions.

We are currently accepting participants interested in these programs. Please contact charles@weact.org or call 212-961-1000 ext. 309 for more information.
