Want to help students transition into college or careers? Here’s one way

This is a guest post by Chaneil Scott, the VISTA Development Project Leader at YouthBuild Philly.

Celebrate youth development with an Eagle, a Ghost Island survivor, and a lot of other cool people committed to empowering youth.

On May 2, 2019, YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School will be hosting its 9th annual fundraiser, #GrowYB, at the HIVE at Spring Point (30 S. 15th St. in Center City).  All funds raised at the event go directly to supporting the mission of YouthBuild Philly — which empowers young adults (18 to 20 years old) to develop skills and connect to opportunities by fostering an environment of love, support, and respect for their whole person.

Students graduate high school and successfully transition to college and career as critically conscious leaders, committed to positive change for themselves and their communities. With this support, students go onto pursue post-secondary education, start careers, build their own businesses and give back to their community.

Guests at #GrowYB will have an opportunity to network, enjoy entertainment, participate in an “everybody-wins” raffle and vie for silent auction items. Raffle and auction items cover a broad array of interests — from salon services to restaurants, museums, and tickets to see the Phillies!

In addition, YouthBuild Philly will honor three community members committed to the school’s core values of Excellence, Perseverance and Respect: Ameen Akbar (YouthBuild Philly), Wendell Holland (Survivor: Ghost Island) and, via video, Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles).

If you become a Generocity member by Friday, April 26, at 11:59 p.m., you will be entered into a drawing for two free tickets (valued at $75 each) to the #GrowYB event. Two names will be chosen at random — and existing members can get in on the action as well. If you’re an existing member who wants to be included in our this promotion, please email Jeanette Lloyd at jeanette@technicallymedia.com by April 26.
