Solomon announces grant for his district
State Rep. Jared Solomon, D-Phila., announces that a grant of $237,740 was awarded to the Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce.
Solomon created the Schools-to-Work Program to develop and expand career opportunities for high school students right into their local neighborhoods.
“Students need to know that the trades are a viable option for a successful and fruitful careers,” Solomon said. “This funding will go a long way for providing career pathways and leave students with hands-on knowledge that they can use for the rest of their lives.”
The Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce will partner with Northeast High School and the Carpenters Union to administer the carpentry pre-apprenticeship program with a total of 60 students.
