Philly Stand Up! is a new committee of area youth led-groups, clergy, and community organizations that work with the city’s youth and their families to overcome histories of poverty, despair and to gain hope for the future. We have come together for the purpose of holding a major youth walk on Broad St. Saturday August 25th 2012 to bring together the city’s youth for social awareness, positive development and success.Our main message for Philly Stand Up! is “BE THE CHANGE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE IN THE WORLD”
The objectives of this walk are to:
1.encourage the youth led-movement for positivity, self-awareness and social change
2. raise resources for area organizations which serve the youth in areas of mentoring,
education and wellness
3. discourage violence, hopelessness and despair among the youth and general public
with a optimistic message
4. highlight the positive contribution of the city’s youth led-organizations.
