Emerging Leader Fellow Rashni Stanford has led the launch and development of Youth HEALers Stand Up!, which highlighted recent and upcoming events in its latest post.
With the summer slowly creeping in, things have been heating up fast for Youth HEALers Stand Up! On May 16, 2019, Youthadelphia held a ceremony to honor this year’s grantees which not only included Youth HEALers but Philadelphia Student Union, YASP, Lil’ Filmmakers Inc., and Sankofa Community Farm at Bartram’s Garden.
This year, Youthadelphia made history by giving away their largest grant to date–$25,000! The recipients? None other than YOUTH HEALERS STAND UP!
Unbeknownst to us members, we were under the impression that we were receiving a grant for $10,000 (which would have been nonetheless rewarding!). However, not knowing that we were receiving a grant for 150% more than what we expected made it that much more of an honor. Elated is an understatement of how we felt as a collective to be able to make history together in just a little over year! We would like to congratulate our fellow honorees on theirs rewards once again and give our most sincere thanks to Youthadelphia for believing in our mission.
