Emerging Leaders Group

  • People meeting around a table

Our Emerging Leaders Group was founded in late 2019 by several supporters who are dedicated to ending homelessness in Philadelphia. The Emerging Leaders are a self-run advisory committee that assists with fundraising and volunteer support, and consistently spreads the word about Pathways and our mission to provide homes, restore health, and reclaim lives. 

Members are exposed to a greater network of fellow leaders along with an opportunity to develop their leadership skills by taking an active role in planning activites and events. The Emerging Leaders is a resource for people who are early yet active in their careers and want to see the direct impact of their efforts in the community. 
Each member is asked to fulfill the membership requirements each year which helps to actively support the mission and initiatives of Pathways to Housing PA.
