PYB's NextGen Committee
We are up next!
The NextGen Committee is composed of young professionals who are passionate about Philadelphia Youth Basketball (PYB) and the work that we do. We ask Committee Members to bring their time, talent, and ties to various aspects of the organization. The ideal candidate is inspired by the PYB mission to make our young people the best version of themselves as students, athletes, and positive leaders, and has the time and dedication to commit to participating in this committee.
The purpose of PYB’s NextGen Committee is to create a mutually beneficial relationship between our organization and the city’s young professionals who are interested in strategically applying their talents and interests through a range of opportunities that will have a profound impact on the development of our city’s young people. In turn, each committee member will have the opportunity to access PYB’s professional network of civic and business leaders, joining a diverse and dynamic community of like-minded basketball aficionados who are interested in making a real impact on our city’s young people.
