West Philly jobs and training

In February, the University City District’s West Philadelphia Skills Initiative (WPSI) will launch the next session of its nationally recognized “Connect to Success” training program. In partnership with one of the largest parking management companies in North America, this three-week training program is tailored to motivated West Philadelphians who want
to build their career.

As a valet attendant, trainees will provide professional customer service when parking and retrieving cars throughout institutions within West Philadelphia. While training with WPSI for this opportunity, performance-based stipends are awarded for successful classroom performance.

Applicants must have a high school diploma or GED and valid and clean driver’s license for more than three years, be currently unemployed, reside in the 19104, 19131, 19139, 19143, or 19151 zip codes, and be able to commit to at least 30 hours of weekly training for three weeks.

Applications are being accepted through Monday, Jan. 26. To submit an application, visit www.universitycity.org.
