Connecting to Opportunities

University City District's West Philadelphia Skills Initiative (WPSI) is providing new ways to connect to opportunity in University City. By leveraging the economic might of West Philadelphia’s’ anchor institutions and philanthropic funders throughout the region we are creating new opportunities for West Philadelphians to effectively connect to work.

West Philadelphia Skills Initiative

WPSI's mission is to connect West Philadelphia employers seeking talent to West Philadelphians seeking opportunity to build local workforce capacity and to support people in realizing their full economic potential. By working within an employer-driven, jobs-first model, we create programming that effectively connects people to work.
