Our Mission

Temple University’s Lenfest North Philadelphia Workforce Initiative (LNPWI) seeks to strengthen the earning potential of local communities by providing job training and career readiness programs that result in outcomes that lead to sustainable employment.

Through the support of a grant from the Lenfest Foundation, LNPWI focuses on creating career and workforce development in the North Philadelphia community, and provides opportunities for both youth and adult employment.

By collaborating with Temple University, local employers, and North Philadelphia residents, Temple’s LNPWI is a community-informed initiative providing resources and information to residents targeted in the 8 ZIP codes immediately surrounding Temple’s Main Campus and Health Sciences Center. The ZIP codes are: 19121, 19122, 19123, 19125, 19130, 19131, 19132 and 19140.
