Work Ready

If YOU ARE 12-24 YEARS OLD AND LOOKING TO GET PAID UP TO $1,000, DEPENDING ON THE PROGRAM, FOR A SUMMER WORK EXPERIENCE, CHECK OUT WORKREADY.

WorkReady is a program in July-August for youth living in Philadelphia. This year, WorkReady Summer experiences will include safe in-person participation at least 3 days/week. Vaccinations are not required for WorkReady overall but may be required based on program or worksite requirements.  

WORKREADY IS A PAID OPPORTUNITY!

Participants in WorkReady Summer programs earn ~$1,000 depending on the program. There are two types of programs offered in the summer:

Incentive-based programs are targeted towards young people with little to no previous work experience and are open to 12-24 year-olds. These programs offer opportunities to learn about careers and career pathways, set short-term goals, and provide the opportunity to work on individual or group projects. These programs pay up to $1,000 based on the number of projects and milestones completed during the program.

Wage-based programs are targeted towards young people with previous work or leadership experience and are open to 14-24 year-olds. These programs offer opportunities for career exploration and preparation and engage participants in hourly work-based experiences. Young people earn $11 per hour in wage-based programs.
