What Does YEAH Offer?
YEAH successfully engages with teens in Philadelphia in a variety of ways. We offer programming after school, in high schools, recreation centers, and wherever else we are needed in our communities.
Read about our programs and services below, and see how we may benefit your teen.
Peer mediation and
Our peer led mediation and conflict resolution program allows teens to be trained to serve as peer ambassadors and help their peers resolve conflicts within their communities and schools. While young people lead this effort, we understand that adults may need to mediate and provide interventions when it comes to violence or generational conflict. For more information, please complete our contact us form or email us at email@example.com.
TEEN LED FOOD BANK
YEAH teens are committed to running and operating a monthly food bank to help provide food security for our neighbors in West and Southwest Philadelphia. On the 15th of every month, we give out groceries to our community in different places in West & Southwest. Follow us on social media @yeahphilly or contact us to stay up to date on our next food giveaway location.
Teens at YEAH need a space to be themselves and learn things that can be applied to their lives. Our workshops are conducted weekly and focus on areas such as understanding and managing stress, healing from trauma, conflict resolution, career readiness, healthy relationships, and current events. These workshops allow our teens to be engaged, learn applicable skills, identify beneficial resources, and form relationships with peers, mentors, and community members. Inquire about our workshops through our contact us form or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Community & Civic engagement
YEAH prioritizes engaging young people with community-based businesses, community leaders, and organizations such as the local police districts, schools, and recreation centers. YEAH understands that when more people in the community get to know the teens who live there, they are more likely to give them opportunities, help them grow, and assist if conflict arises. Visit our events page to see what we are doing in the community.
Youth Advisory Board
The YEAH youth advisory board allows teens to make decisions about the organization and the services they receive. At YEAH, youth are the experts of their programs, and the youth board helps implement and evaluate the organizational programs to ensure each teen gets what they need.
