What is WPSI?
The West Philadelphia Skills Initiative (WPSI) is the bold solution necessary to close the opportunity gap in Philadelphia. For ten years, WPSI has solidified its role as one of the highest performing workforce intermediaries in the country by building customized talent solutions that bridge the divide between unemployed Philadelphians seeking opportunity and employers seeking talent. The Skills Initiative runs year-round, cohort-based, jobs-driven training models that harness the hiring power of our area’s major employers, while cultivating our neighbors’ talent.
