On Saturday, May 6, the City will host a Parent & Youth Resource Fair at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
The resource fair will highlight citywide programs, initiatives, and services available to all Philadelphians.
A particular emphasis will be placed on summer programming and employment opportunities for children, youth, and teens.
According to recent U.S. Census data, about 21.6% of the Philadelphia population is under 18 years of age.
Philadelphia is filled with various programs, activities and organizations to keep the roughly 345,000 youth who make up the population safe, engaged, and supervised.
“With our public partners, we’re working hard at the city’s Office of Children & Families to deliver a rich line-up of free and low-cost programs and locations that are safe and adult-supervised for children, teens and families,” a post published by the Office of Children & Families reads.
They include over 60 pools and 90 spraygrounds that are open 7 days a week; summer camps with themes such as performing arts, visual arts, e-sports, and rowing; community evening resource centers; the Police Athletic League; and many more.
The event will feature music and fun activities, as well as opportunities for youth to sign up for some of the various programs. All Philadelphians are welcome and encouraged to attend.

The event is made possible by Philadelphia’s Office of the Year, City Council, the Office of Children & Families, the Managing Director’s Office, and 211.
The 2023 Philadelphia Parent & Youth Resource Fair will take place Saturday, May 6, 2023, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, G Hall from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
