Summer WorkReady Star of the Day: Keenen Wright

August 5, 2013


Keenen Wright has been a UAC summer intern for two years in the Youth Division department. Keenen is currently a Criminal Justice Major at Landmark College. After graduation, Keenen wants to become an FBI agent or work for the CIA.  In his spare time, Keenen enjoys basketball, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. Keenen’s advice to next year’s interns would be “focus, come to work on time, and be respectful.”


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.
