KEYSPOT at UAC Helps Good Students Become Better

Date: 
May 25, 2012

When The Urban Affairs Coalition recently launched its KEYSPOT at 1207 Chestnut St., several city residents were already coming in to use it. Among them were Barbra Carey of Overbrook, and Sherry Fisher of Southwest Philadelphia, both of whom have completed computer training classes with KEYSPOT and plan to participate in more classes.

For Carey, the benefits of basic computer skills became clearly apparent when she began taking classes at a local community college. She was astonished that no professors would accept handwritten papers.

Putting young people to work

Date: 
May 21, 2012

Philadelphia is facing a summer jobs crisis. Due to diminishing federal funds and the recession, estimates suggest that only 5,400 young people will work this summer through WorkReady Philadelphia, the city's youth workforce development system. Local employers, area foundations, and city and state governments are stepping up. But there's still a way to go to reach the target of 7,500 jobs.
