Are You an Emerging Leader?


Emerging Leaders are passionate, young changemakers from a variety of fields who are working to create a more equitable Philadelphia. The Emerging Leaders program is a component of PLA's Just Philly initiative, which brings together passionate community members and young leaders dedicated to creating a more just Philadelphia. The Emerging Leaders program provides young Philadelphians the opportunity to meet like-minded peers, learn about key issues affecting low-income Philadelphians, develop leadership skills, and brainstorm collaborative strategies for community impact.
