Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance

yf_pagp_photoSince our launch four years ago, over 750 Philadelphians have attended our networking opportunities, volunteer days, advocacy events, and educational tours. Our work has included a window restoration project in the Parkside neighborhood with Habitat for Humanity, a bike tour of preservation-oriented development projects, and a behind-the-scenes tour of Hill College House (UPenn). We also continually strive to raise awareness of endangered or overlooked historic buildings, sites, and neighborhoods, such as our current focus on the historic Sharswood neighborhood.

The Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance (YFPA) is aimed at engaging young residents of the city on preservation issues related to the urban fabric of Philadelphia. YFPA serves as a forum for emerging professionals, both preservationists and members from a broader general audience, to engage with urban issues in a social setting. YFPA focuses on (1) giving young preservation enthusiasts a place to meet and discuss relevant issues in the city, (2) providing a volunteer base of individuals to help with Preservation Alliance initiatives, including the incorporation of social media into its communications (3) attracting interested people outside the field of preservation to the current and ongoing efforts of the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia.
