From KatieRose Keenan of the Northeast Times:
The Philadelphia City Year branch was created in 1996 and serves as a key site among the 18 chapters in the country.
Now the organization is spreading its mission to Northeast Philadelphia, primarily Frankford. The Young Heroes program is expanding with school visitations throughout the Northeast and an appeal for youngsters to take part in service projects.
Recruitment began in October. Young volunteers will be trained by City Year staff and help out at schools, primarily in tutoring and mentoring, starting in January.
