Giveadelphia is a community of young professionals based in the heart of Philadelphia whose mission is to support local nonprofits through charity work and unique gatherings held virtually and throughout the city. Founded in 2019, our goal is to make the world a better place one philanthropic event at a time, and we do that together here in the city of Brotherly Love. The charities we support are hyper-local and lesser known. We believe that by lifting up these nonprofits, our community has a greater chance to build and prosper from one generation to the next.
YSRP uses direct service and policy advocacy to transform the experiences of children prosecuted in the adult criminal justice system, and to ensure fair and thoughtful resentencing and reentry for individuals who were sentenced to life without parole as children (“juvenile lifers”). YSRP partners with court-involved youth and juvenile lifers, their families, and lawyers to develop holistic, humanizing narratives that mitigate the facts of each case; get cases transferred to the juvenile system or resentenced; and make crucial connections to community resources providing education, healthcare, housing, and employment.YSRP's ultimate goals are to keep children out of adult jails and prisons and to enhance the quality of representation juvenile lifers receive at resentencing, and as they prepare to reenter the community.
