Workforce Institute was launched in 1974 as a nonprofit workforce development organization established by the clergy and members of the First United Methodist Church of Germantown to help neighborhood youth and adults gain greater access to resources that could lead to better careers and higher education. Today, Workforce Institute and its nonprofit career school, City College, educate and train individuals who have limited access to resources, to connect them to employers and help meet the changing needs of the workforce. Workforce Institute and City College encourage sustainable careers and economic independence by building a supportive learning environment in which students receive personalized attention. To further that mission, City College, an approved and accredited training provider through the Department of Education and one of the few nonprofit secondary career schools in Pennsylvania, offers an associate degree in specialized technology and a diploma in health information technology.
