State of Young Philly is an annual event series held in the fall that brings together over 25 organizations and 2,000 young professionals, elected officials, organizational leaders, and millennials. State of Young Philly 2018 will focus on what civic engagement means to young Philadelphians.
We welcome you to join us as we work to engage, to connect, and to represent young Philadelphians across the city, helping them become better citizens and equipped to inspire change in Philadelphia.
Proposed SOYP events should aim to answer the question "What is civic engagement?", and should consider how we as young Philadelphians can drive civic engagement both as individuals and through community efforts.
Past events have taken the form of lightning talks, walking tours, trainings, panels, and storytelling, all designed to give participants the opportunity to interact with issues and connect with decision-makers.
FINAL SELECTIONS WILL BE ANNOUNCED BY THE END OF AUGUST 2018.
