The Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) is a solutions-builder forging together significant players to alleviate a root cause of poverty by preparing 12-24-year-olds to become productive working adults. Our work is grounded in the understanding that young people need access to both education and employment, proven factors in being prepared for a career. With a track record of increasing impact, PYN funds and brokers action with the right partners to collectively address barriers. PYN constructs systems to create change, while innovating to meet evolving needs. Together with our partners, PYN dramatically changes the trajectory of individuals’ lives by giving voice to underserved youth, and ultimately creating a pipeline for an educated, engaged workforce.

The Project Manager, Continuous Improvement (PMCI) will design and implement high quality training, professional development and technical assistance for partners and direct service providers connected to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHS). Training will be focused on helping service providers move PYN’s Career Development Framework (CDF) from theory to practice. This work will be done in close collaboration with DHS. The PMCI, in conjunction with the Manager, Program Learning & Development, will collaborate with internal and external teams to align, translate and use data to inform program practice and decision making. Based on ongoing feedback and communication the PMCI will iterate on PD and TA offerings to meet DHS provider needs. The PMCI will work with providers to identify areas of CDF and program alignment, and, areas where alignment and program quality could be increased. They will then in turn design and deliver professional development and offer resources to augment programming.
