12 workforce development programs for Philadelphians in need of a job

Billy Penn rounded up a dozen free or affordable job-training programs to help the unemployed or underemployed get ahead.

Hiring? Consider the underemployed.

You might be hearing a lot about the national unemployment rate, but what about underemployment?

Working, but not getting enough hours to make ends meet, is a problem for about 40,000 Philadelphians, according to Billy Penn.

Similar to its massive list of low-cost summer camps for Philly kids, the online news pub just rounded up resources for those experiencing economic hardship — this time for free and affordable workforce development and job training programs in the city.

Billy Penn plans to publish a Part 2 of this resource list, but for now, here’s what the team came up with:

  • American Red Cross
  • Brightwood Career Institute
  • Center for Social Policy & Community Development
  • City of Philadelphia Office of Human Resources
  • Community College of Philadelphia
  • Congreso de Latinos Unidos
  • Connection Training Services
  • District 1199CC Training & Upgrading Fund
  • Home Care Associates
  • JEVS Human Services
  • Lincoln Technical Institute
  • Philadelphia Job Corps Life Science Institute

For teens, at least, we can think of a few more: Hopeworks ‘N Camden and Urban Technology Project both train young people for tech jobs.
