Henry Street Settlement’s Youth Employment Training Program Proposal
The Henry Street Settlement was founded in 1893 and today offers over twenty innovative programs including day care, mental health services, housing, and a variety of arts programs. The Settlement has been working in the field of youth employment for many years. Henry Street began by providing summer and year-round jobs that ranged from low skill activities — such as delivering interagency mail — to the more skilled positions of day camp counselor and clerical assistant. In the past five years, Henry Street has been enlarging its Youth Employment Service Program to pay attention to the development of work readiness skills in youngsters and to the provision of skill training and on-the-job work experience.
