New for Summer:

We have officially kicked off our youth programming summer internships through support from the Philadelphia Youth Network. Through our partners, North Light and BPSOS, we will employ over 150 youth to work at various businesses ranging from the Nepalese Community Center to Lyceum Wellness Center. Youth will spend 6-weeks at various work-sites gaining valuable skills that will deepen their understanding of workplace conduct, teamwork, and time-management.

Teens 4 Good hosted the event of the season for the launch of Grounded in Philly on June 26th, 2013 at their 8th and Poplar farm. Over 100 attendees came out to learn more around land access and usage in Philadelphia. We ask you, what is your vision for the future of farms and open space in Philadelphia?

On July 25th, 2013, two selected members, Providence Center and Lighthouse, will receive a visit from the Eagles Youth Partnership Book Mobile to kick-off summer reading. The Eagles Youth Partnership serves children ages 5-12yrs old and know how to make reading F-U-N!  Since 2000, the Eagles Book Mobile has distributed over 532,107 books to Philadelphia youth.

On June 13, 2013 with generous support from Aramark Building Communities and City Year's Care Force team, we will engage over 200 volunteers for a transformative day of service both in Camden and in Philadelphia.  Lutheran Settlement House and Tamarack Housing will receive a make-over with a focus in Health and Wellness / Workforce Development.
