We passionately believe that all young people deserve high-quality experiences in educational and out-of-school time settings and that intentionally designed programs, age-appropriate and engaging activities provided by well-trained, caring adults play a key role in facilitating these kinds of experiences.
Fab Youth Philly’s (FYP) has a unique, holistic model for youth development.
Our three-pronged approach to youth development is aimed at creating relevant, engaging, and empowering learning opportunities at the individual, professional, and community level.
First, we provide innovative, award-winning summer and afterschool programs for teens with a focus on workforce development programming.
Second, we connect with youth development professionals working with or on behalf of youth through our Center for Youth Development Professionals (CYDP), which offers competency-based professional development and networking opportunities.
Third, we consult with other youth-serving organizations to provide a range of consulting services, ranging from curriculum development to retreats and small conferences.
"Since I was a Play Captain this summer, I've become more outgoing, I speak up more, and it's easier for me to make friends at school. "
