Working to ensure that all Philadelphia youth are prepared for
educational and economical success.

The Philadelphia Council for College and Career Success (the Council) works to ensure that Philadelphia’s youth become productive citizens who are ready to participate fully in our region’s workforce and the life of the city.

The Council is a standing committee of the Philadelphia Works Board and is convened and supported by the Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN). As the contracted YouthWorks Administrator by Philadelphia Works, PYN administers Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) funding for youth programming on behalf of the Council and Philadelphia Works. Additionally, PYN leverages funding and aligns campaigns and initiatives with the Council’s goals and priorities.

Additionally, the Council functions as the federally mandated Perkins Participatory Planning Committee, through which it examines and oversees all Career and Technical Education (CTE) programming across the School District of Philadelphia.

For more information about the Council, please contact us.
