Launched in September 2013, PowerCorpsPHL is a City of Philadelphia AmeriCorps initiative operated by EducationWorks. PowerCorpsPHL engages disconnected young adults and returning citizens to enter and succeed in career pathways by using service as the strategy to provide career-connected education and paid, work experiences. Working closely with partners in the public and private sector, PowerCorpsPHL members engage in a 12-month phased experience tackling pressing environmental challenges in Philadelphia and developing the skills required to secure meaningful work.
Successful staff and leaders within PowerCorpsPHL embrace their affiliation with AmeriCorps and share a number of common characteristics: commitment to the mission and goals of the program, dedication to their role in achieving those goals, and willingness to work across teams to create and maintain a strong program culture capable of creating opportunities and overcoming challenges.
EducationWorks engages children and young people by providing high quality educational programs that make the school day whole and reengage disconnected young adults to education and career readiness. Recognizing that each child has unique needs, our staff works directly with community and school leaders to identify challenges and create customized programs that will have the greatest impact. From in-school programs to out-of-school time and AmeriCorps service, youth from six years to adulthood are positively impacted by EducationWorks programming. EducationWorks creates Opportunities for Learning and Skills for Life.
