EducationWorks engages children and young people by providing high quality educational programs that make the school day whole and reengage disconnected young adults to education and career readiness.
EducationWorks is a nonprofit organization that provides academic support, career readiness, and enrichment programming throughout Greater Philadelphia. In the engage vertical, we provide academic support, career readiness and enrichment programming throughout Greater Philadelphia. By focusing on topics like literacy, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM), and social emotional learning, we are equipping approximately 12,000 students annually with the tools needed to be successful in school and life. In the re-engage vertical, we focus on experiential, on-the-job training, shadowing and career exploration. EducationWorks creates Opportunities for Learning and Skills for Life.
Recognizing that each child has unique needs, staff works directly with community and school leaders to identify challenges and create customized programs that will have the greatest impact. From in-school programs to out-of-school time and AmeriCorps service, youth from five years to adulthood are positively impacted by our programs.
