Host and Sponsor Summer Interns

Posted by WorkReady Philadelphia on March 14, 2016


In a press conference Monday, Mayor James Kenney and other city officials, businesses and philanthropies charged organizations from around Philadelphia to unite in a citywide effort to increase youth employment in Philadelphia.

“Summer jobs are important because they make connections with people, with adults who can change the course of a child’s life,” said the Mayor.

Even if you were unable to attend, we hope you will consider changing the course of young persons life by pledging your commitment below.

Host youth in your place of work for six weeks from July 5 to August 12, the duration of the summer program.

Financially support summer work experiences. The cost to support a six week experience is $1,800 per experience.
