Philadelphia - The Philadelphia Youth Network Board of Directors announced the resignation of their President and CEO Stacy E. Holland, effective September 27th. Stacy has been an executive-on-loan to the School District of Philadelphia since March. In this role, she was tasked with building partnerships that will support the District with identifying immediate resources to strengthen the service structure for our schools. After much personal reflection, Stacy has decided to continue her work in Office of Strategic Partnerships.
Stacy co-founded Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) in 1999, taking it from a start-up organization with two employees to a nationally-recognized leader in youth workforce development charged with managing over $28M of government, foundation, and employer investments in Philadelphia's youth career preparation and education efforts. Under her leadership, PYN is a citywide entity dedicated to integrating services and building systems that promote positive post-secondary and economic outcomes for young people, serving over 17,000 youth annually.
"It is with great understanding and optimism that the Board accepts Stacy's resignation," said Pamela Gallimore, Chair of the PYN Board of Directors. "Since founding PYN, Stacy has led the organization to serve nearly 100,000 young people. The organization is known for its innovation with building creative systemic strategies to meet the academic and workforce needs of thousands of youth throughout the City. We are confident that the organization will continue to thrive and foster innovation, collaboration and implement creative ways to provide meaningful education and employment preparation opportunities for all of Philadelphia's young people."
The Board of Directors is actively working to identify a successor.
