Every year, City Year Greater Philadelphia hosts a "networking" event for the corps members as a way for them to practice job networking and making connections when they graduate from the corps in June.  The event is led by facilitators who are alumni, current staff members, colleagues of alumni or community leaders who can share their leadership path with the corps.  This day is one of many conversations to provide resources and support to corps members who will either start of return to school, or are looking for jobs. 

Two or three alumni who specialize in a field will anchor a table and lead a small group discussion about the steps they haven taken since graduating City Year that has led them to their current work.  After each 18 minute session, corps members will rotate to a different table and participate in a new discussion.  After the third session. there will be time to connect informally with the corps.

  • AmeriCorps
  • Career Counseling
  • Corporate
