Through Social Mobility Partnerships the Social Innovations Journal aims to evaluate the existing anti-poverty programs in Philadelphia framed within short-term and long-term strategies. The evaluation will conclude with both a mapping of Philadelphia’s anti-poverty ecosystem; social impact individually and collectively; and short-term and long-term strategy recommendations. This edition of the Social Innovations Journal will focus on the Jobs and Education strategy of City Council’s Poverty Action Plan.
For the past 10 years; The Social Innovations Journal has connected and inspired local change agents; through the sharing of knowledge; best practices; and research; to improve poverty. Concrete impact and change requires more than education and engagement. The time has come for The Social Innovations Journal to become a network for collective action; and this short concept paper explains how this evolution will happen.
