Thank you to the Septa Team for coming out to the Community to speak about job opportunities with SEPTA. The representatives from SEPTA did a one on one sit down session with each and every person that walked through the door today at the Dixon House , which was 170 people. Dan who is a Director with the Human Resource Department at SEPTA spoke about hiring ex-offenders and we're going to make that happen.This is a start of a great relationship between Unity in the Community , DCS and Septa. As Dan said , "This is only phase one , phase two is hiring some people." This was our first employment session and we are working on our next one with a different company in April.We have to address the issue of poverty in our community and one way we can do that is by bringing various companies to the heart of the community to speak about Jobs. @ South Philadelphia

We would like to thank each and every person that assisted our young people with filling out for Summer Jobs today.We assisted close to 160 students this evening. A special thank you to the Dixon House and the Urban Affairs Coalition for assisting us with making this happen.It was a blessing to see so many young people that are excited about working this Summer. Today was a perfect example , that if we support our young people , then we will see change in our communities all across Philadelphia. The young people had smiles on their faces when they completed their packets and their parents were proud as well. Some of the students came all the way from Germantown and etc to sign up. We will be hosting another one at the Wilson Park Boys and Girls Club on Thursday.
Please spread the word or share this information with the young people in our community in regards to Summer Jobs.We will be hosting this at the Dixon House tomorrow at 6:00 PM.
One of the best ways to lower the poverty rate and decrease the gun violence in the community is by bringing companies to the heart of the community and provide job opportunities to the residents. Please join us this week as we kick off our "Employment Session" with Septa on Thursday, March 29th at the Dixon House from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.

It saddens me to write this because mother nature is showing us who's really in charge.Due to inclement weather we will be postponing this event to a later date. We will be announcing the new date on Friday.Please blame mother nature, she is the leading suspect. The school just informed us.Have no fear , this event will happen.Please spread the word.
We are teaming up with the Urban Affairs Coalition again this year to assist the youth in our community with signing up for Summer Jobs in three different locations.We are looking for volunteers to join us in helping the young people fill out the applications.We will be hosting the sessions at the Dixon House , the Wilson Park Boys and Girls Club and Universal Audenreid High School.The only way can decrease the violence in our communities is by giving our young people something to look forward to.
