Every month PYPM hosts a youth-led open mic and poetry slam for teens to come and share their work in a safe, uncensored environment. Young people from all over Philadelphia come to express themselves in front of a supportive audience, which includes other young people, mentors, parents, teachers, and community members. Youth Night is a special evening for teens to grab the microphone and be heard!
Teens who participate in the monthly slams earn points to qualify for the PYPM Slam Team, which competes at the annual Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Festival held in various cities across the U.S with over 50 other youth poetry teams from around the world.
(doors open at 5:45PM)
