Together with community partners, PHS carefully designs projects that build on neighborhood strengths and aspirations to use greening to improve the environment, health and quality of life in their communities. PHS partners with the Philadelphia Prison System (PPS) and Temple University to support people who are incarcerated to develop new skills, gain hands-on landscaping and horticultural experience, and pursue meaningful employment upon their release. This position is responsible for supporting the Workforce Development Manager by overseeing operations at the prison, designing the curriculum, leading the training program, evaluating and promoting successes, and helping to ensure program deliverables are met in collaboration with partner organizations. This individual reports directly to the Workforce Development Manager.
