Planning for the coming recovery by building careers
The Philadelphia Business Journal | October 2020

For long-term equitable economic recovery, we need more entry-level job training—even before jobs are ready to be filled. CareerWork$ and our BankWork$ partner, Philadelphia Opportunities Industrialization Center, Inc. share thoughts on how to move the nation ahead.

Our Focus Areas

CareerWork$

We connect young adults from low-income communities to employers in banking and healthcare to create access to lasting careers that help people, employers, and communities succeed.

Public Education

We support and partner with strong leaders and innovative programs that prepare students to graduate career ready, within the public and career technical education system.

Social Impact Theatre

We support contemporary theatrical productions in Western states that explore relevant and challenging social issues, can spark dialogue around differing views, and begin the process of healing.

Supportive Care

We address the psychological, social, and spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones in tandem with each patient’s clinical treatment. Our deepest partnership is with City of Hope, based in Duarte, CA.

Our Response to COVID-19

The enormity of job losses across the country sparked our CareerWork$ program to develop Work$Ready, a new free, online, job readiness training. We are helping jobseekers reenter the workforce with a new sense of confidence and job readiness skills that will help them land a job.

Impacting one person, one community, at a time

CareerWork$ provides training and access for young adults from low-income communities to entry-level positions with career growth potential in banking and healthcare. Our BankWork$® program shows enormous impact for graduates, employers, and communities.
