About Us

Walnut Hill Community Association (WHCA) serves the neighborhood of Walnut Hill. The boundaries for the Walnut Hill neighborhood are Market Street on the North, 45th Street on the East, Spruce Street on the South and 52nd Street on the West.

WHCA was founded in 1961 by a group of neighbors, led by Charles Campbell Sr., who were concerned about the deterioration of their neighborhood.

WHCA continues to be a neighborhood group run by residents who are dedicated to their community revitalization. WHCA actively promotes the neighborhood and encourages residents to participate in community events and to help determine neighborhood improvement priorities. WHCA continues to strive and work for the betterment of the community and its residents. We welcome your input, energy and participation.

We are seeking motivated young adults who are ready to pursue a career in technology. More than 750 young adults have graduated from Tech Impact’s ITWorks FREE training program – and 80 percent are employed within six months of graduation, earning an average salary of $35,000 – $40,000.

 ITWorks is a 16-week accelerated technology training program for adults, 18-26 years old. The course starts with 11 weeks of technical training on hardware, software, networking, security, and troubleshooting, which prepares participants for industry-leading Cisco IT Essentials and CompTIA A+ certifications. Each participant also completes a five-week internship to gain real-world experience and build their resumes.

Our Fall classes begin in late August and applications are open now!

Interviews will be conducted throughout July.

Help us celebrate the leaders in education across Pennsylvania in our upcoming issue, Education Power Players, coming this September!
