Community service is a commitment of YEP's founder, board of directors, staff, and youth volunteers. Our board of directors volunteer their time to help and educate youth. With the increasing economic needs and the communities we serve, many children do not have the resources to purchase backpacks and school supplies. As a result, YEP has adopted a "Back To School" supplies program. In keeping with our philosophy, "Education in Every Experience", our board provides over 50 children with a backpack filled with school supplies and disburses information on the importance of parental involvement in school activities. This community service event provides low income, at risk children with the supplies they need to have a great start for the school year. We are passionate about making a difference in the lives of youth.
YEP’s Jazz Brunch occurs annually, on the first Saturday in October from 11am-2pm at various elegant venues in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. This event provides an experience that is far from your imagination. The smooth sounds and spoken word artistry of young talent from the Philadelphia and surrounding areas, lends itself to an afternoon of enjoyment. The youth are passionate about their craft and outstanding entertainers. Studies have shown that music fosters creative, critical thinking skills and academic achievement.
Additionally, there are other attractions, spoken word, art work and the excellent selection of delicious foods. This event is part of YEP's fundraising efforts supporting its "Young Musicians" program and featured young artist(s).
