Walking meeting for youth development consultants

Posted by Sandbox on May 19, 2014

Join us for an exciting Sandbox gathering on June 12th from 8:30-10am.

Join us for a ‘walking meeting’ where you’ll have the opportunity to network and chat with other attendees while learning about the elements and benefits of walking meetings. Wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if it looks like rain; we’ll walk rain or shine!

Listen here to this brief radio clip from WBUR in Boston to learn more about the value of walking.

The Goals of The Sandbox Collective: To create a monthly forum for networking, resource sharing and collaboration for adults who: work with, on behalf of, and advocate for youth in Philadelphia. The Sandbox Collective was born out of CONNECT PYDC, which was started in April 2013 as a monthly forum for youth development consultants. The goals of those meetings were to bring consultants together to increase collaboration and reduce competition, and to share resources.

  • You should join us if these guiding principles resonate with you:
  • You use a strengths-based approach to work with youth, families & communities;
  • You have an interest in collaborating with adults who work with, for, and/or on behalf of youth;
  • You look at your work as a juicy extension of your purpose;
  • A part of you wants to create from outside of the ‘systems’;
  • You think that work and play can co-exist;
  • You want to have different conversations about ‘what’s best for….’ (Fill in the blank);
  • You are seeking thought/test partners who share similar values abut their approach to working with youth, families, & communities.
