Advocacy at YEAH Philly is deeply rooted in community and led by the teens and young adults we work with every day. We know that young people in Philadelphia are often silenced, oppressed, and kicked out of places that do not work in their best interests. At YEAH, we make impactful and transformational change for and with teens and young adults. We intentionally stand independent from all systems and focus on Black liberation while addressing racism and the root causes of violence. YEAH Philly is not here to continue the status quo, but to do things the right way, and ensure that we are fierce advocates for young people to get the lives they want and deserve.
