EDSI was one of nine youth service providers awarded a portion of a $6 Million Employment Connections Grant to provide workforce development, training and year-round employment and education services to healthcare graduates of career and technical schools between the ages of 17-21 in the Philadelphia area. This investment in our youth helps provide a critical link to young adults in a city where deep poverty often prevents worthwhile employment opportunities. EDSI is proud to be able to provide these youth with the tools they need to enter a career pathway and eventually reach self-sustainability.
What a year! 2017 was so good to us and there's no doubt that 2018 will be just as great, thanks to all of our wonderful employees. Here's the rundown on the impressive awards EDSI collected this past year.
For the past six years, EDSI has been named to the List of Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation, and we couldn't be prouder. This distinguished award recognizes companies that value their employees as their greatest asset and that strive to create organizational value through their talent. We sincerely thank all those who made this possible, especially our incredible and dedicated team!
