July 31, 2013


Katie Walker has been interning at UAC for three years. Katie attends the Science Leadership Academy and enjoys cheerleading, basketball, and modeling. Katie wants to attend Cornell College and later attend veterinary school to pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian and owning an animal clinic. Katie’s most memorable moment at UAC was meeting UAC President Sharmain Matlock-Turner and learning more about the work experience. Interning at UAC has showed Katie that if she wants something, she has to work hard for it!


UAC’s Youth Division Summer WorkReady program provides paid summer job opportunities for Philadelphia youth every summer. This experience provides youth with career exposure, resume and interview preparation, as well as workforce skills training and a practical understanding of the working world.
