Submitted on Thu, May 2, 2013

Youth Action is pleased to announce that it has selected Youth Venture to receive its 2013 Chairman’s Award for supporting the launch efforts of Youth Action.

As Anthony Phillips, Youth Action’s Managing Director & Board Chairman , said, “without Youth Venture’s initial investment into our organization, there would be no Youth Action today, now 10 years later.  This acknowledgement also congratulates Youth Venture for its pioneering work in aiding students across our nation to start long lasting community projects that will have an impact on their community. Youth Venture is by far an organization that believes in student-led change and the role they play in helping students transform communities since 1996 has been phenomenal.

The announcement of Youth Venture’s award will be made at Youth Action’s 10th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, May 3rd, 2013 from 6:30-9:30PM, which will be held at The Friends Center located at 1501 Cherry Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19102.

Since August 2003, Youth Action, a student-led service non-profit in Philadelphia, service mission has been simple: to equip students with tools, resources and support they will need to influence their peers to get involved with their communities.
