Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Key Medium and Jarvus Innovations developed a platform promoting apprenticeship programs in Philadelphia for ApprenticeshipsPHL (APHL). The platform connects with both employers and job-seekers. The goal of the program is to increase the registered apprenticeships and pr-apprenticeship programs available in the Southeastern Philadelphia area and they partner with Philadelphia Works, JEVS Human Services, The City of Philadelphia, The Finishing Trades Institute of the Mid-Atlantic Region, District 1199C Training and Upgrading Fund, Philadelphia Youth Network, Keystone Development Partnership, The School District of Philadelphia, and Communities in Schools of Philadelphia.
Key Medium developed a custom WordPress theme for APHL and worked on the project with a $1.5k discount through Coding For Causes as they had a limited budget and this was a great opportunity to propel the community forward. The new website has a clean layout with a clear navigational structure. Key Medium worked on the frontend development work in coordination with Jarvus Innovations for their client JEVS Human Services on behalf of Philadelphia Works for the new apprenticeship initiative. They also worked on the SEO and behind-the-scenes website structure to increase traffic and awareness. For its work, Key Medium received an honorable mention in the 2019 AVA Digital Awards in conjunction with Jarvus Innovations, their design partner, and JEVs Human Services.
The website can now be used as a resource for employers and apprenticeship-seekers, interested in exploring the costs and benefits of apprenticeships. Key medium brought the website into the modern area using the best-in-class mobile-first design framework (Bootstrap 4).
Key Medium are delighted to have been part of this project to help the greater community and increase traffic and awareness of apprenticeship programs in the city.
