Service Leaders Summit 2013

Registration is now open for the 2013 Service Leaders Summit!

  • Are you participating in service activities that involve inner-city youth?
  • Are you serving as a mentor, tutor, or coach?
  • Are you interested in learning more about how you can be an advocate and make an impact in the lives of inner-city youth?
  • Are you interested in incorporating inner-city youth into your service programming?  

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you won’t want to miss the 6th Annual Service Leaders Summit, sponsored by Drexel University’s Lindy Center for Civic Engagement and the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development (PHENND).

The Service Leaders Summit brings together college students, faculty, nonprofit professionals, and community organizers to share passionate ideas and practical skills for building a better Philadelphia. This year’s theme, Serving Inner-City Youth, is designed to heighten students’ understanding of the myriad factors influencing the lives of inner-city youth – while learning effective practices for improving their service approach and impact.
