What Do We Do?
Our bilingual staff and volunteers match day laborers with employers who are in need of temporary labor. Potential workers who have the skills and background required are referred to employers who then negotiate the working conditions and wages. Workers are expected to complete the tasks requested to the best of their ability and employers are expected to be fair.
Work performed varies from construction work to yard work, domestic services to handy-man related jobs. If there is a need for a work to be done, we can find a worker!
All information provided by employers and workers to SEEC staff is strictly confidential.
SEEC's services are free for both employees and employers.
The Shirlington Employment and Education Center has been in Arlington since 2000. The aim of the Center is to provide workers who were previously on South four Mile Run Drive with an alternate venue to seek work. It is the first official worker center still in operation in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The Center consists of two facilities, the main office and the pavillion. Employers are able to visit either to find a worker for jobs to be performed. Our staff can be found at both sites, ready and willing to facilitate the pairing of worker and employer.
In addition to facilitating employment for workers, we offer vocational, English and job-related courses. The goal of the courses is to build the skillset of the worker pool, facilitate the interaction between laborer and employer and persuade employers to return to SEEC when they are in need of an extra hand.
