Partners

We’re all in this together.

SCPa Works is committed to building a productive network of business, economic development, and community partners to create a demand driven opportunity engine for our region.

In order to help create a region where opportunity for prosperity exists for all, we’ve built an extensive network of partners allows us both to understand the strengths of our community as well as refer businesses and job seekers to the right resources at the right time. Our partners include industry employers, educational institutions, community-based organizations, labor, and economic development. SCPa Works understands that many of the jobless and underemployed citizens in our region face many challenges that cannot be solved with a “one-size-fits-all approach.” That’s why we are committed to building cross-sector networks with our partners to collaborate and solve issues on a community-wide basis.

Ja’Quan a youth that worked with ResCare at the PA CareerLink® last summer as part of the Paid Work Sellers imageExperience (PWE) program. He just won the John Harris NAACP Act-So award for his art. Both Ja’Quan and his mother will go on to Cincinnati for the NAACP Act-So Nationals.

Ja’Quan is set to graduate with his friends on June 5 from John Harris High School. Two weeks ago, I escorted Ja’Quan and two other youth on their first interview. They were all able to secure full-time employment at DHL and will begin working 2nd shift immediately following graduation. We are all beyond proud of Ja’Quan and his accomplishments!
