[EVENT] @YBPhilly x PhiladelphiaYouthProject: Creating A Better Tomorrow Conference 6-15-13
The Philadelphia Youth Project (PYP) and YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School are collaborating to motivate, inspire, and empower the youth in Philadelphia via a dynamic conference. The “Creating A Better Tomorrow” conference is free for students and will be held at YouthBuild Philly located at 1231 N. Broad St., 3rd Floor, registration beginning at 10:30am and the conference ending at 3pm.
The purpose of “Creating A Better Tomorrow” is to present captivating, interactive educational workshops and a panel that is geared towards: fostering leadership; providing financial literacy; fuelling personal development; and elevating community consciousness. We essentially aspire to educate and encourage the youth to be determined, responsible, respectful, and self-reliant, while simultaneously planning short and long-term goals for their future. Furthermore, the youth will be encouraged to get involved in community service, in-school/out of school activities, and academic development organizations.
A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. The youth will have the chance to win gifts and prizes, one of which will be the grand prize of an Apple iPad. Grand prize winner will be announced during the educational resources and vendors will be available during an interactive lunch networking mixer.
We are inviting the public to get involved via: donating; volunteering; performing; helping a high school student to register; and/or hosting an information table during the networking mixer. For more information on how to get involved, head to PhiladelphiaYouthProject.org or email PHLYouthProject@gmail.com for inquiries.
