Learning from young people and building a new generation of leaders.

Mayor’s Office of Youth Engagement

What we do

The Office of Youth Engagement (OYE) knows that young people have important ideas about how to make the City a better place to live.

As part of our work, we support the efforts of the Philadelphia Youth Commission and the Millennial Advisory Committee. By participating in these groups, young people can:

  • Develop leadership skills.
  • Bridge gaps between generations.
  • Suggest ways for City government to better serve its residents.

OYE is part of the larger Office of Public Engagement.

    Care as First Response Community Healing Circle

    April 27, 2021
    5:30 pm to 7:30 pm, 2 hours

    We want every resident in Philadelphia who feels fearful, outraged, frustrated, retraumatized by the Chauvin trial to know: you are not alone, and we do not want you to deal with this by yourself.  

    We are creating safe spaces for people to talk, vent, and process their emotions in communion with other residents. The City will be hosting virtual Community Healing Circles on Zoom. 

    These Community Healing Circles are intended to help residents share their feelings and find community and support from neighbors. 

    And please remember that if you are in crisis, we strongly urge you to call the Philadelphia Crisis Line at 215-685-6440. This hotline operates 24/7 and has behavioral health specialists ready to respond to those in need of immediate help.

    Sign up for an upcoming Healing Circle here:
