Not even COVID-19 could prevent the youth and staff of Hopeworks, PowerCorps PHL, and Rodriguez Consulting from launching their long-awaited infrastructure training program!

Thanks to the support of Springpoint Partners, LLC’s Delta lane, youth from both Camden and Philadelphia have the opportunity to train and earn high-wage careers in the infrastructure industry. This unique partnership is successfully placing motivated young people, who might otherwise be un- or underemployed, in high wage, mid-skill positions in the water infrastructure industry, helping build and maintain the fundamental utilities and services that make our cities function. These are jobs that are not only growing, but needed more than ever in the midst of a historic pandemic.

Key concepts include an introduction to streets infrastructure, water distribution and collection systems, stormwater and green water management, field data collection and land surveying, and mapping and computer-aided design.

Look to see the infrastructure trainees on site in a neighborhood near you!
