Workforce Skills Training

The Office of Workforce Development (OWD) develops and supports interventions to improve Philadelphia’s workforce development system. Our work aims to address poverty and racial disparity and grow the economy.

OWD addresses the talent needs of employers and prepares Philadelphians for family-sustaining jobs. We do this by:

  • Connecting residents with training for skills that employers need.
  • Addressing barriers that prevent residents from accessing meaningful career opportunities.
  • Building a workforce system that is more coordinated, innovative, and effective.
