Important Message from the UAC 2016 Summer WorkReady Team


We are excited about the opportunity to work with you this summer! Due to a high volume of calls and emails, we apologize in advance for delays in responding to inquires and requests for information. However, we are working to return all voicemails and emails in a timely manner.

As you may know, there are new state background check regulations (Act 15) this year which have caused delays in the WorkReady program. The Urban Affairs Coalition (UAC) and the Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) have been working around the clock to help students and worksites become approved for WorkReady this summer.
