CCA prepares learners to enjoy success in school, land great jobs in their field of choice and give back to the communities in which they live, work and play.

The goal is for CCA graduates to become the leaders of tomorrow – and contribute to society’s betterment

Philly Startup Leaders (PSL) began in September of 2007 as a handful of entrepreneurs meeting in the back of a neighborhood bar to trade war stories. After an incredible evening of sharing experiences and giving advice to our peers, we decided to meet again a few weeks later.
Word soon spread that we had assembled a great group of ambitious young minds, and our ranks began to swell. Within a couple of months, our meetings outgrew the back room of the bar, and we knew that something special was happening.
PSL is an all-volunteer, grassroots organization. The success of our group lies in the hands of our members. In order to get the most out of PSL, it is imperative that members take an active role in planning events, contributing to workshops, and share their knowledge and expertise with other members.

To be successful at this work, there is simply no substitute for the reach, breadth and know-how of the NeighborWorks network – more than 240 of the nation’s best community development organizations – and the support structure that we have built over more than 35 years.

We build the skills, supplement the resources and amplify the reach of these organizations so they can build more houses, empower more individuals and transform more communities than they would be able to do on their own.
