Opportunity Youth Relief Fund

Posted by Philadelphia Youth Network on August 11, 2020

The Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) is excited to partner with The Hive to launch a special fund to address the immediate and pressing needs of Philadelphia’s opportunity youth and alleviate the additional stresses that have developed as a result of current events. This flexible fund will support a variety of needs including assistance for food, transportation, housing, technology equipment, and mobile/wireless connectivity, with a focus on ensuring young people can connect to and remain on education and employment pathways. Applicants will be eligible for a one-time assistance payment of up to $250. Funding will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis until the resources are depleted.
