How does CLIP help Philadelphians make the city a nicer place to live?
Besides the partnership between EDSI and the PA CareerLink® that brings potential jobseekers to the city’s worker pipeline, partnering with residents, community groups, businesses, other city departments, and agencies to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods helps beautify the city.
As part of the program’s mission to improve quality of life, CLIP participants, volunteers or employees work to:
• Remove graffiti vandalism from buildings, street signs, and other street fixtures
• Enforce the City’s regulations to make sure vacant lots and areas are kept clean
• Lend supplies and offer trash pickup for CLIP-coordinated neighborhood cleanup
• Complete their community service sentences by cleaning and beautifying the city (if an adult non-violent offender)
