To prepare

  • It is recommended that candidates begin now to gather or order their vital documents (original social security card, birth certificate, State/Philly City ID, and diploma/GED/transcripts).

• A 4-18 month long workforce development program that partners with Philadelphia Parks and Rec and the Philadelphia Water Department
• We tackle pressing environmental challenges, including improving stormwater managements, increasing tree coverage, and revitalizing public land

• Following foundations phase members apply into career pathway tracks that range from 6-18 months
