Generocity is one of 20 news organizations producing Broke in Philly, a collaborative reporting project on solutions to poverty and the city’s push towards economic justice.
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
