October 30, 2019— Fall is finally here and in celebration of the change of seasons YouthBuild Philly’s Student Life team hosted a Fall Fest for students and staff to come together and get festive. Nothing creates a Fall feel more than warm baked treats, hot beverages, and Halloween crafts. The Student Life team delivered that and so much more. Highlights of the day included:
