About The Event
Not everyone is meant to follow the same path and that extends to education. While some thrive in a traditional education environment, many individuals in our communities would benefit from programs that train outside of the world of academia, while still aiding them in completing benchmarks such as industry-recognized credentials.
Through this candid conversation, attendees will become more aware of:
- Roadblocks facing individuals in our communities and what they need to overcome them
- How nonprofit and philanthropy structures -- and good intentions -- sometimes make it hard for populations to thrive
- How philanthropy can support systems-building work
- The support required for them to reach their goals - How the greater business community (and individuals) can get involved
- The availability of an evidence-informed, long-term coaching program to support individuals in Philadelphia's workforce development ecosystem.
- Soneyet Muhammad, Chief of Programs, Episcopal Community Services
- Dan Rhoton: Executive Director, Hopeworks
- Moderator | Amaya Howard, MPA, Founder and Principal Consultant, Samaritan Grants Consulting LLC
