Philly Summer JobsPhiladelphia’s economy is growing and summer jobs are becoming more and more important. Youth need summer work experience. Employers need young talent. All of us need Philadelphia to be a city that gives young people the tools they need to succeed.

That’s why in 2020 we are asking YOU --community members, employers, investors, philanthropists-- to step up to ensure that every young person who wants a summer job can have one. Our goal is to raise $5 million in new funds for Summer 2020, and every dollar helps. Achieving this goal will take all of us working together.

Consider making a donation to the Philly Summer Jobs Fund today, and help us ensure Philadelphia youth can gain the skills and real-life experience they need to succeed.
