Summer WorkReady 2013 A Huge Success!

September 26, 2013


This past summer, UAC placed 1,192 students in paid jobs and internships across Philadelphia! UAC also assisted the Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) in placing an additional 485 students in paid jobs through the Department of Labor Program. Students had an opportunity to work in various industries and gain real work experience. Over 60 new worksites joined the Summer WorkReady program to provide these opportunities to our students. Even more exciting, of 1,192 students placed this summer 111 were retained for part-time employment throughout the current 2013-2014 school year!


UAC continues to help students throughout the Philadelphia region gain valuable work experience and exposure to a variety of career opportunities. Special thanks and congratulations to UAC's Summer WorkReady Team for a job well done!
