YP Social Media Day and HBCU Pittsburgh College Fair

PITTSBURGH - YouthPlaces and the Pittsburgh Historical Black College and University Alumni

Association is hosting its second college fair together. In efforts to inform students of diverse

school options, several HBCUs like Cheyney University, Florida A&M, and Morgan State

University, will host tables for 11th and 12th graders to explore.

November 6th is Social Media Day at YouthPlaces. The Social Media Day celebration kickoff at

12:00 PM noon with a Social Media Luncheon from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM, where YP staff, big

Pittsburgh social media names, and other non-profit organizations will network over great food

and open conversation about social media trends, topics, and usage. The 17 YP sites are

included in the party too! The YP site with the most social media traffic, using

#YPSocialMediaDay and #YPHBCUCollegeFair, will win a PlayStation 4 Prize Pack.

YouthPlaces, founded in 1997, serves as a community response to an overwhelming need for

afterschool programs for teens in high-risk, underserved communities. Beginning with five sites

and 500 youth, YP has evolved to 17 sites serving over 4,000 youth annually. Recently, YP

started three social media sites to better communicate with their parents, students, staff,

funders, key stakeholders and community.
