Beyond charitable investment, a growing number of companies are investing in neighborhood schools through time and talent. These public/private partnerships are yielding expert-led school-based models that are expanding throughout Philadelphia. 

Hear from Chamber members who are leading the way by implementing financial literacy, professional development, and/or skills-training programs in some of Philadelphia’s most distressed neighborhoods. Learn how you can assess and apply your business’ expertise to meet the needs of local schools and families.
