A Shout-out to PowerCorpsPHL


Being the first city to introduce a program like Green City, Clean Waters, Philadelphia serves as a national model for many to follow. However, this dream of a sustainable green city could not be possible without the help of PowerCorpsPHL.


This exciting new program is a partnership between AmeriCorps, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the City of Philadelphia. PowerCorpsPHL builds on the initiatives of both Mayor Nutter and Governor Corbett by encouraging environmental stewardship, while building career opportunities for Philadelphia’s youth.


Active throughout the department, PWD is proud to host a number of PowerCorps members. Team “Blue Magic” supports the Green Stormwater Infrastructure Maintenance Team. This group of young men and women has done an outstanding job of maintaining the green in Philadelphia. In just over 10 weeks on the job, they have collected over 9,385 lbs. of trash and street litter (over 4 tons), 3,124 lbs. of leaves and organic debris and 2,138 lbs of construction materials from green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) across the city. These achievements are the result of over 430 hours hard work, completing over 326 work orders for PWD.


Thanks, PowerCorpsPHL!
