Community/University Partnerships: Collective Impact on Workforce Development in North Philadelphia
Hosted by Temple University

This North Philadelphia community experience will take participants up Broad Street, which is the main north/south thoroughfare of the City. Starting at Temple University’s main campus, which is less than two miles from City Hall, participants will learn more about the North Philadelphia community, about the university’s comprehensive workforce development plans and programs, and about strategic partnerships with local stakeholders.

From Temple University, participants will travel less than a mile to the Sharswood Community, where Philadelphia Housing Authority recently relocated its main headquarters. Participants will tour Vaux Big Picture High School, which houses a HUD designated EnVision Center, and where the College of Public Health has co-located a community clinic operated by a nurse practitioner and supported by nursing students. Presenters will share information examples of how anchor institutions, such as Temple and PHA, are transforming neighborhoods for the benefit of local residents.

Next, participants will travel through neighborhoods a mile north, and closer to Temple University Hospital. Information about two programs will be highlighted: (1) Cure Violence Philadelphia that uses violence interrupters to stop community violence, and (2) Community Health Workers who are frontline public health workers and who are trusted members of the community.
