Making an Impact in Underprivileged Communities is a NWI Priority...   

The Naval Welding Institute, LLC firmly believes no one should be limited in their professional achievements based on what community they belong to. We recognize that far too often one's community can inadvertently be a barrier to accessing quality training. Additionally, we feel that the training pursued should have opportunities for career advancement beyond entry level positions.

NWI identifies and partners with community developers, focused on transforming neighborhoods by providing educational hubs, emphasizing essential skills training that can translate to:

 By collaborating with Ujima Developers LLC via Community Transformation Partners LLC NWI will offer advanced manufacturing training, welding and nondestructive testing, in the West Philadelphia STEAM2IE maker space. The space will create opportunity for the underprivileged 

and underrepresented  demographics in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).


In addition to creating a skills pipeline to excellent local and regional jobs, our goal is to also provide motivated students with opportunities to engage our collegiate partners and assess higher education options for best fit.
