Elements of Success: WorkReady Philadelphia Program Year 2011-2012 Report
Philadelphia Youth Network
What does it take to deliver WorkReady Philadelphia's high-quality career-connected programming? In short, it's all about the "elements"--those essential components of the system that combine to produce success for young people. This 2011-12 WorkReady report reinforces this theme by using visual aspects of the "Periodic Table of Elements", which was created to describe how groups of chemical elements behave and interact with one another. Similarly, "Elements of Success" describes how key aspects of the overall WorkReady system combine and interact to create opportunities for Philadelphia young people. That is, it takes several "elements"--investors, program models, youth-serving organizations, and young people, themselves--working together to realize "successful WorkReady programming". Like the strong chemical bonds that create the molecules, crystals, metals and gasses that form a physical environment, the connections between and among the elements of the WorkReady system serve to create powerful new opportunities that can open new worlds of possibility for Philadelphia young people. In addition to describing the work of key partners and the models they've helped to establish, this year's report presents a wide range of data on the experiences of young people participating in WorkReady and highlights their outcomes.
