The mission of Young Friends is to support and advance KIPP Philadelphia Schools as it strives to create and sustain an exceptional school system for the most underserved communities in Philadelphia. Young Friends pursues this mission by cultivating future leaders, raising funds, and offering volunteer and pro bono services to the organization.
Led by an energetic and accomplished Steering Committee, Young Friends rasies $30,000 annually to fund college scholarships, plans volunteer events connecting area young professionals to students, and hosts a spring event offering young professionals a chance to dress up, mingle, and enjoy a night out while supporting KIPP. Additionally, the Young Friends Steering Committee seeks out and cultivates partnerships with like-minded organizations to further support Philadelphia students.
Young professionals who share our belief that all students will learn when given access to an excellent education are invited to join us.
