OPPORTUNITY, ENGAGEMENT & EMPOWERMENT-

THE FUTURE OF PHILADELPHIA’S YOUTH



At our last event in February “The Most Pressing Challenges Facing Philadelphia’s Children Today,” we mentioned that we would be bringing you part two of our series.  For this program we wanted you to hear from people who are making a difference in the lives of some of our children most at risk.

 

We will continue with our “conversation” format and welcome the following participants:

  • Cynthia Figueroa - President and CEO of JEVS Human Services (former Deputy Mayor for Children & Families),
  • City Council Member Isaiah Thomas,
  • Ameen Akbar - Chief Mission Officer for Philadelphia Youth Basketball, 
  • Chekemma J. Fulmore-Townsend - President and CEO of Philadelphia Youth Network, and
  • Youth participants from Phila Youth Basketball and Phila Youth Network.

    _______________________________________________________
Nearly half of young people in the US (ages 16-24) are at risk of becoming disconnected or have already experienced disconnection from school and work.  In Philadelphia, this segment of young people is overrepresented by individuals of color as well as those living in poverty. 

Learn how nonprofits are providing meaningful services
that connect young people to education and employment and introduce employers to their future talent.  Through sports, mentoring and other support systems, these programs can be the means through which the trajectory of the lives of under-served youth can be changed in a positive way.


Partnerships in the Philadelphia community among nonprofits, businesses and city government programs remove barriers and connect the systems that touch the lives of youth, building and deepening education and employment pathways. 

Please join us to understand how this happens.  To register, click the "Register" button above.
