We will be concluding this week's #PFAnnualConference2021 as we do every year with an awards ceremony at 7:30pm.

We invite all to come to this virtual celebration to honor our students and everyone in the #PhillyFutures community:

Conference 2021 Year in Review & Student Awards


The theme for #PFAnnualConference2021 - #ForwardtoYourFuture - recognizes our vision of a city where all students have what they need to succeed in college and thrive in life, and our scholars who continuously prove that they are moving forward and overcoming every obstacle.

The #PFAnnualConference2021 kicked off yesterday! As an intro to this 4-day event, hear from current students, alumni, and staff about their experiences and how they have benefited from Futures programming, mentorship, sponsorship, and career guidance:

"As we have said before, our students and their lives matter. We will not stand idly by as racism, hate, and fear are espoused and perpetuated by those in power.

There is a path forward, one that celebrates and affirms the lives of our scholars, and we hope you will join us."
