PYSC is committed to the sports-based youth development sector and takes a system-building approach to advance and sustain this important work. PYSC streamlines conversations and initiatives in the following areas:

  • Data Collection – PYSC works to establish common definitions and means for collecting, analyzing, and disseminating data on youth demographics, participation, progress, and outcomes for the SBYD sector
  • Relationships – PYSC builds relationships with key local public and private stakeholders, as well as national organizations and foundations that will help infuse the local sector with information, best practice standards, and resources
  • Communications – PYSC works to raise awareness of SBYD programming, highlighting the benefits and successes of youth that participate, and informing policy makers, funders, educators, and others that work directly with our city’s young people to influence Philadelphia’s overall youth policy agenda
