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

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.
