Attendees will discover program ideas, resources, and partnership opportunities designed to engage Pennsylvania’s teens and young adults in volunteerism and civic involvement.
In addition to a keynote presentation by Judge Marjorie Rendell, conference sessions will focus on ways libraries, educational institutions, not-for-profit organizations, municipal bodies, and other committed citizens can work together to inspire young people to continue the tradition of civic and social engagement and build a promising future for Pennsylvania.
Meet others who share PA Forward’s vision for a Pennsylvania where citizens have the knowledge and skills they need to improve their lives, to participate in and contribute effectively to their communities, and to connect with one another through discourse.
