PHENND Fellows- YESPhilly Community Center Coordinator
Youth Empowerment Services Philly is a 501(c)3 non-profit agency whose mission is to develop a broad base of opportunities for Philadelphia’s out-of-school youth to prepare them to become successful, self-sufficient adults. Since its inception, YESPhilly Accelerated High School has provided opportunities to over 200 high school drop-outs per year. We have developed an educational model that prepares students for college and careers by tying together personal development, media arts and technology skills, and academic instruction to meet Pennsylvania standards for high school.

Member Duties : The overall goal for the PHENND Fellow is to organize and coordinate a series of resources, activities and workshops to enrich the lives of YESPhilly students, their families, and residents of the surrounding community. These can include health, adult education and counseling services as well as workshops to develop practical or creative skills. Activities will be determined based on student interests and surveys conducted by the VISTA. The PHENND fellow will convene community partners, solicit partnerships/ resources, and develop programs for the YESPhilly Center. They will recruit partners as providers of weekly school and evening activities. They will focus on bringing in existing resources at no or low cost—and on inviting local artists and trainers to establish YESPhilly as their base for connecting with the community. Also, the fellow will survey partners, providers, and participants interest in joining a YESPhilly Center Advisory Board, and hold monthly board meetings.
