University Community Collaborative News

We provide a continuum of leadership opportunities for youth and young adults aged 14 to 24. The Collaborative Continuum is designed to keep youth engaged at different levels, capacities, and ages within our organization over an extended period of time. Each program culminates in a final project, either a video or youth-organized workshop or training.

Thanks to the Philadelphia International Airport for featuring POPPYN in their pop-up theater at Terminal B-C baggage claim! The exhibit will be up for the next six months.
