What is WorkReady Summer?

WorkReady Summer is a 6-week summer job program for 12-24-year-olds in Philadelphia. WorkReady Summer offers 100+ different experiences through 80+ partner organizations throughout the city. This summer, the program will offer safe in-person experiences for young people to gain valuable experience and develop critical skills. Each year, at least twice as many young people apply for the roughly 8,000 opportunities available, so applicants are encouraged to apply early and check their email often.

WorkReady is managed by the Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN).
