State of Young Philly events launch with civic engagement fair

Join Young Involved Philadelphia (YIP) as we kick off the 9th annual State of Young Philly (SOYP) during our annual Civic Engagement Fair.

On opening night of SOYP, you will meet and greet many organizations representing the most innovative non-profit, governmental and advocacy groups in Philadelphia. Each participating organization will have representatives present to introduce you to their organization’s mission, tell you about their upcoming events, and recruit new volunteers and committee members. When you're not signing up to volunteer with these great organizations, you will have the opportunity to connect with other civically minded young professionals over drinks and light fare. Drink tickets will be available for $5 each.
