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.



About Us

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.



Youth Programs

We are known for our high quality youth programs. In 2021, the National Summer Learning Association selected us an Excellence in Summer Learning Awardee!

Professional Development

We believe that learning should be relevant, engaging, and empowering.



Organizations across the country hire Fab Youth Philly to develop curricular materials, to train staff and to serve as a thought partner for executive leaders.
