The Young Friends of Independence is a group of professionals between the ages of 21 to 40 who work in multiple fields but all share a common thought… that Philadelphia is the best place to work/live and Independence National Historical Park is the center of it all. After all, this is where our country started!
What Do We Do
We do lots of things… we host events, we volunteer, we fundraise , we help with programs and so much more. Mainly our goal is to promote all the great things our national park has to offer to the young people of Philadelphia.
How Do We Do This
We promote the park by using a classic recipe:
lots of fun + a good portion of history mixed with networking
and bake until you have had a fantastic time!
No really, we take the classic networking event and add in some good old American History and before you know it, you have had a great night meeting new people and maybe just maybe you found yourself hanging out with a Founding Father.
