YEAH, Inc. (Youth Empowerment for Advancement Hangout) is a youth-led community-based nonprofit in Philadelphia that works with teens ages 13 to 19 who have witnessed or engaged in violence. By creating a safe space on evenings and focusing on community engagement, conflict resolution, and workshops that are applicable to the lives of young adults...this fairly new organization has emerged as one of the few that really are impacting the lives of West & SouthWest Philly teens in a positive manner.
In a packed dining room inside the Union League in Center City, The Philadelphia Tribune honored three Philadelphians with its History Maker Award and paid homage to others positioned to make history at the annual Christopher J. Perry/Carter G. Woodson Black History Awards Luncheon on Thursday.
