PHENND Fellows- YES Philly
PHENND (The Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development) is a 30-year-old consortium of over 25 colleges and universities in the Greater Philadelphia region. The consortium actively seeks to revitalize local communities and promote civic responsibility through service learning among the region's higher education institutions. In 2017 PHENND adopted the Philly Fellows and have continued to foster young non-profit leaders who seek to expand the infrastructure for community partnership development across Philadelphia. The Non-Profit Tract actively builds capacity through a variety of activities in local organizations. If you want to help build sustainable solutions in Philadelphia, apply below. YESPhilly 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 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. The PHENND fellow will convene community participants, solicit partnerships/ resources, and develop programming for the YESPhilly Center. They will recruit partners as providers of weekly after-school and evening activities. They will initially focus on bringing in existing resources at no or low cost—and on inviting local artists and trainers (“makers”) 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 start holding monthly advisory board meeting by the middle of the year.
