Our Approach

Data-Informed Workforce Development Programs and Supportive Services

LNPWI and its network of funded partners offer programs and resources to job seekers that provide individualized support along every step of their career pathway. These services include: literacy assessments, adult basic education, connections to high school equivalency programs (i.e. GED, HiSET, Helms Academy), career coaching, Job Readiness Workshops, Employer Spotlights, Job Fairs, career pathway training & credentialing, retention services, professional development, referrals to supportive services and more! In addition, we provide specialized services for populations that may experience additional barriers to employment including: opportunity youth, adults without a High School Diploma, individuals with disabilities, English Language Learners (ELL) & immigrants, returning citizens, and veterans.

Fostering Connections and Collaboration in the Workforce Development Ecosystem

We partner with a network of over 40 education and workforce development providers serving North Philadelphia to convene the Opportunities for Workforce Leadership (OWL) Collective. The mission of this coalition is to strengthen the workforce development ecosystem and improve employment outcomes for North Philadelphia residents through data-informed, strengths-based, and community-driven workforce development strategies. The coalition meets regularly to foster relationships between organizations, identify weaknesses and challenges in the ecosystem, and to discuss solutions and best practices.

Supporting Human Resources Practices that Benefit North Philadelphia Residents

Temple University’s Employer Council for Local Hiring is a collaborative partnership between Temple University, Temple University vendors, and leading employers in the region with the goal of increasing local hiring of North Philadelphia talent. This committee is facilitated by LNPWI and meets monthly to discuss current labor trends and best practices, identify upcoming employment opportunities for North Philadelphia residents, build employer-provider partnerships, and to share information with workforce development providers that inform practice.
