EducationWorks has teamed up again with Philadelphia Youth Network for their WorkReady Summer Service Learning Project.
Each summer, more than 30 high school students explore real-world topics that impact their communities through research, reflection, and action, and produced a multi-media project to showcase their findings. During this time our participants engage with speakers that are connected professionally to the topics that they are researching. The Service-Learning Program encourages students will explore the individuals and/or organizations that design and influence the future impact of the service-learning topics.
