E3 Power Center

The West Philadelphia-based E3 Youth Opportunity Center, managed by The Bridge, a PHMC affiliate, helps some of the highest risk youth in Philadelphia develop the skills, supports and self-esteem necessary to attain academic success, enter the work world and become productive citizens. The program services teens that have dropped out of school or are involved with the juvenile justice system. E3 stands for Education, Employment and Empowerment. Services include basic literacy instruction, GED classes, college and SAT preparation, college introductory trips, cooking, typing, music production, photography, job readiness classes, paid internships, job placement, life skills classes, health education, parenting education, fitness instruction and structured recreational and social activities. All classes are taught and facilitated by certified instructors or trained professional staff.
