About this event

"Not your same old same old professional development"

Between 2013 and 2020 we provided nearly 70 FREE networking and professional development offerings for youth development professional in Philadelphia through a monthly event we called the Sandbox. Not including our special activities like movie screenings and special topic gatherings, that comes to just about 100 hours of networking, training and professional development.

The goals of those initial Sandbox meetings were to bring youth development consultants together to increase collaboration and reduce competition, and to share resources. The group grew and the focus shifted to also include other youth development practitioners, educators, teaching artists, community members, and advocates.

Over the seven years, attendees have: secured contracts, developed arts projects, collaborated to create new projects, tested new workshop content, facilitated (a) Sandbox meeting(s) and more.

We hope you'll join us!
