Fostering the Power of North Philadelphia

Temple University’s The Lenfest Center for Community Workforce Partnerships (LCCWP) is under Temple University’s Vice President’s Office for Public Affairs with the mission of engaging stakeholders throughout the Commonwealth to address issues that impact health and well-being of communities.

While LCCWP serves communities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the majority of its programs focus on serving Philadelphia with a special focus on serving residents living in the eight zip codes surrounding the University: 19121, 19122, 19123, 19125, 19130, 19132, 19133, and 19140.

Additionally, LCCWP places a high priority on serving populations who have been historically underserved and/or excluded from the workforce including opportunity youth, adults without a high school diploma, returning citizens, English-language learners, immigrants, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
