PYPM- Slam League V (2015)
The Philly Youth Poetry Movement (PYPM) is a volunteer-run, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a safe space for Philadelphia teens to discover the power of their voices through spoken word and literary expression. PYPM offers literary arts education programming for youth ages 13-19 that promotes creative expression, critical literacy, life skills, and civic engagement. We believe that when youth take ownership of their voice, they take ownership over themselves.
PYPM- SLAM LEAGUE V (2015) hosts teams from Philadelphia-area schools in a three-month intellectual and artistic competition. PYPM Slam League promotes networking, teamwork, school pride, writing and performance development, and most of all, the growth of young people’s confidence.
