Connecting WPSI Graduates to Employment

The West Philadelphia Skills Initiative (WPSI) | Jobs Ambassadors

As a result of November’s Connect to Success program, four formerly unemployed West Philadelphians are back to work! This four-week training session prepared participants to locate, maintain, and succeed in careers that suit their interests and long-term goals. WPSI partnered with Allied Barton to provide a customized training curriculum, specific to security work and the broader hospitality industry. Just hours after program completion, three graduates were offered employment with Allied Barton as Safety Ambassadors and another graduate began work with a local food service establishment. We are proud to be a part of our graduates’ successes and send our best wishes to Eric, Takia, Iren, and Vinson!
