Philadelphia is a breathtaking example of high-poverty neighborhoods emanating into the suburbs, stretching across America’s sixth most populous city. Profound declines in poverty have only occurred in isolated areas of the city. Elsewhere, high poverty levels have persisted in many close-in neighborhoods, and other areas have seen increasing poverty take root in previously comfortably middle-class areas.  While the poverty rate across the city of Philadelphia is 23.3%, representing the poorest of the largest U.S. cities.  Nearly 1 out of every four residents lives in poverty. The city now has over three hundred eighty thousand people below the poverty line. This unique scatter of high-poverty neighborhoods results in economic well-being and life outcomes being highly strained on significant scales.                                            


Youth and young adults looking to excel in life need well-developed self-esteem, a good educational skillset, and resources to manage and seize opportunities. Often, if opportunities are not available, youth and young adults may begin to experience hardships that negatively impact their achievement and overall life outcomes. These hardships impact their emotional, social, and professional development, creating an environment conducive to further negative outcomes. Fortunately, when people are supported, have mentors, or can benefit from programs and services, they have far greater success in achieving positive outcomes. Research suggests that people with resources and opportunities have better and more predictable outcomes. Positive social connections, mentors, extracurricular activities, and social services are reported to enhance positive outcomes for all people’s psychological well-being and physical health.
