to celebrate the conclusion of UCCP’s most ambitious Summer Academy to date.

This summer we have supported over 90 Philadelphia youth in developing social change campaigns, curating their communities, creating powerful media projects and becoming confident, effective leaders. Help us honor their hard work, creativity and accomplishments at one or ALL of our final events!

The University Community Collaborative of Philadelphia prepares and supports youth and young adults to become confident effective leaders and collaborates with organizations to create  cultures that value and integrate the contributions of youth. UCCP’s Temple Youth VOICES Project empowers youth to use their VOICE for positive social change. It aims to build the individual and collective power of youth through collaborative research, media production and relationship building with non-profit organizations and government agencies.
