Request for Proposals: E3 (Education. Empowerment. Employment) Services

Posted by Philadelphia Youth Network on January 21, 2020


With the support of Philadelphia Works, Inc. (PWI) and the City of Philadelphiaߣs Office of Children and Families, the Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) seeks proposals from high-performing youth serving organizations to implement neighborhood-based E3 (Education. Empowerment. Employment) services supporting education, employment and empowerment. In this new procurement, the investment is shifting away from a center-based approach to focusing on the supports and services needed via any number of programmatic approaches.

The purpose of E3 services are to prepare opportunity youth (young people between the ages of 16-24 who are out of school or work) for employment.
