The Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) on behalf of WorkReady Philadelphia, is seeking proposals from high-performing, youth-serving organizations to provide educationally-enriched career development opportunities for youth and young adults, ages 12-24 years old during summer 2020.

WorkReady is a citywide effort to address the skills gap by convening partners, employers, leaders of youth-serving systems and youth to build a coordinated approach to preparing young people for future employment.

WorkReady stakeholders seek to give young people ages 12-24 access to meaningful paid work experiences that promote self-efficacy, connect youth to caring adults and offer the opportunity to build the transferrable skills required to secure and sustain employment.

The RFP was made available August 12 and is available to download here.

Prospective respondents must submit a “Notice of Intent to Apply” form to inform PYN of their intention to submit an application. The form must be submitted via the webform and is due no later than 11:59 p.m. on August 30. This notification is for planning purposes, to assist in securing the necessary number of independent reviewers.

A Bidders’ Conference will be held on August 21 at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Please register for one session. While both sessions are open to all, it is recommended that new applicants attend the morning session.

Proposals are due Sept. 25, 2019 by 12 p.m. Please note that late or incomplete applications will not be accepted.

If you have any questions about this process, please email PYNRFP@pyninc.org.
