Help assist Philadelphia Youth Network’s WorkReady program this summer in their mission to provide the youth of Philadelphia with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the business world.

WorkReady Summer Internships provide Philadelphia high school students with paid workplace experiences at area businesses for six weeks during the summer. These internships give young people a taste of the working world, exposure to career opportunities, and an understanding of how school is connected to economic success.

As a volunteer, you will assist Philadelphia Youth Network in conducting several seminars over the course of the summer. The intern orientation seminars will be held on June 23 and June 28 and will consist of activities and information focused on bettering these young adults’ workplace success. On both the 23rd and 28th there will be a.m. and p.m. sessions. The a.m. session will run from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. and the afternoon session will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

There will be a training session on June 20 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. to provide you with further information regarding your responsibilities as a facilitator.
