Reach for Community: Virtual Reality Visions for a Youth-built Drop-in Center

Join local youth leaders and artist Marie Alarcón in their fight against youth homelessness as local young people unveil an interactive design of their proposed youth drop-in and community center. Experience their blueprints in virtual and augmented reality, and hear first hand experiences by the young designers.
Reach for Community is an art exhibit brought to you by Neighborhood Time Exchange artist Marie Alarcón,  members of Youth Healers Stand Up! and the brave creative minds of young people at People’s Emergency Center, Youth Service Inc, and the Young Adult Leadership Committee.
Youth Healers Stand Up! is a collective of young people who have lived through homelessness, and who use their experiences to engage their peers in using their voices to fight for real resources to make youth homelessness a thing of the past.
Reach for Community is an event highlighting the need for safe youth-friendly drop-in spaces in the city of Philadelphia, as well as the hard work of local young people working to make their dreams a reality for themselves and their peers.
