Temple University’s Lenfest North Philadelphia Workforce Initiative (LNPWI) seeks to strengthen the earning potential of local communities by providing programs and training that result in outcomes that lead to sustainable employment. Through the support of a grant from the Lenfest Foundation, the LNPWI will focus on identifying opportunities for youth employment, adult professional development, and workforce development. In addition, LNPWI will work to increase collaboration between Temple University, local employers and the North Philadelphia Community.

To inform the creation of this initiative, Temple University and the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia have come together to engage the community, workforce development organizations, and employers in the city. They are looking to hear directly about your perspective on the workforce in North Philadelphia, specifically to learn more about what challenges employers and workers face, and how pointed strategic workforce investments can support firms, organizations, and the North Philadelphia community.

To further engage in this topic, please join them at the Advancing Workforce Solutions for North Philadelphia event — an opportunity for individuals to come back together to further shape workforce development strategies for North Philadelphia residents, based on a comprehensive understanding of the economic development landscape for Philadelphia. This event is open to community residents and leaders, volunteers and staff of community, faith and non-profit organizations and Temple University, as well as representatives of government agencies and employers.
