Watch Young Involved Philadelphia take over our Snapchat tonight and Monday

In honor of State of Young Philly, YIP is reporting live from a civic engagement fair and an event that'll teach you how to run for office. Follow along @technicallym.

Got an election hangover? Same.

Young Involved Philadelphia (YIP), the nonpartisan, volunteer-run organization that encourages civic engagement among the city’s self-identifying young people, wants to help cure it with its State of Young Philly series. Tonight kicks off the seventh annual week of events for those looking to improve Philadelphia through advocacy, politics, volunteerism and all kinds of other feel-good stuff.

Our Snapcode thingy.


YIP board members will be showing off their work and why it matters tonight and Monday night through our Snapchat account, @technicallym: 

  • This evening, catch a live report from YIP’s annual Civic Engagement Fair and hear from local organizations that need volunteers.
  • On Monday, Nov. 14, check out its report from “Born to Run: A Beginner’s Guide to Running for Office — Or Just Raging Against the System.” (Yes, please.)
