Last week Youth Action (YA) announced a festive and inspiring student networking event entitled, “The A-List: Successfully Connected,” which will be held on Friday, April 22nd at The Hall of Flags, campus of the University of Pennsylvania, 3417 Spruce Street. The A-List will bring together Black college students from across the Philadelphia region and offer them the opportunity to meet other talented Black college students and work to build lifelong relationships, improved campus collaborations, and stronger community action efforts.

The event, set to kick off at 7:00PM sharp, will feature captivating performances from local college dance troupes, spoken word acts, and musical artists. The atmosphere will be stylish and the dress code is dressy casual. Attendees will be treated to relaxed background music, photography, delicious food, exciting networking activites and more. The setting will be perfect for students to engage in one-on-one conversation, share ideas and experiences, exchange contact information, and develop new relationships with students who attend different colleges and universities in the Greater Philadelphia area.

By the end of the event, students will not only have personal contacts of individuals that can support their life’s ambitions and their campus (both individual and organizational) endeavors. They will also leave motivated to discover how together students can have a greater impact not only on their campus but other campuses and the community at-large. Post event follow ups and action plans will be made to encourage students to share resources and come together to make an even greater and more positive impact on the city.

“Unfortunately, there is a perspective carried by some individuals from various college communities that places more emphasis on intercollegiate athletics and competition, rather than collaboration on meaningful projects,” explains Youth Action Spokesperson, Gavin Grant. “We’ve created an enjoyable and uplifting event with meaningful end goals that include uniting and encouraging Black college students from different schools in the Philadelphia area to embrace the notion of collective campus and community action.”

The event is free of charge. Be on time! To RSVP to this event, visit or email [email protected]
