Friends in the Region Are Stepping up to Help Youth and Solve Systemic Problems!

The long term economic impact of the pandemic is not yet known and the nation continues to struggle to meet the promise of racial equality and justice.  Turmoil and uncertainty currently define the national spirit. But the region is stepping up to find solutions to the challenges that face many of Hopeworks youth while also addressing some of the systemic issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

This past month we have seen an outpouring of support from our business partners in the region.  Our partners are always quick to help, but they are going full steam ahead in their commitment to change.  Friends at TD Bank and PNC are holding regular series of trainings to AGILE Development (TD Bank) and Financial Management (PNC Bank).  Professionals like David Dylan Thomas, met with youth and presented on “Design for Cognitive Bias” and talked about his upcoming book; and Kevin Bunting, Gus Meyer, and John McCartney, held Chat & Chews to offer guidance on careers in tech, IT, and non-tech fields.

Tech firms and digital marketing friends in the Philly region are taking real steps to help prepare and hire Hopeworks youth by designing curriculum that will strengthen the youth-to-jobs pipeline at companies like SEER Interactive, Linode, TechWomen at Comcast, Promptworks, Salesforce, and SEOM.   

Hopeworks’ promise to youth, to help them transform their lives with living wage jobs and a future career track, doesn’t happen in a vacuum and we’re grateful to all in the region who are helping to make it happen!
