Professional Training at Pierce College

October 21, 2013


This fall Pierce College will partner with the Year Up Professional Training Corps (PTC) to launch a workforce solution for young adults in Philadelphia. Year Up provides urban young adults with the skills, experience, and support necessary to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education.

The PTC is a unique system that links college and employment. Students will take a full course load in addition to participating in full-time internships at Fortune 1000 companies in Philadelphia. Pierce and on campus Year Up staff will also provide extensive one-on-one training to help students develop the skills necessary in today’s workforce.

This opportunity will provide young Philadelphians a chance to embark on a fulfilling career! For more information, please contact Pierce’s Vice President of Student Services, Uva Coles, at or visit the PTC Philadelphia website at
