Young Urban Leaders to kick off networking series

The Young Urban Leaders, founded by Camden School Board member Sean Brown, will be hosting a networking event Friday.

As a young city activist, Brown founded his group a few years ago as a way to connect with other young activists in the area.

"The purpose of YUL is to empower young people," to address issues plaguing urban areas like Camden, Brown said. Though most of the current 25 members have some connection to Camden, not all live in the city.

Friday's event will be the first of a series of networking events. Brown expects the networking happy hours to be held every fourth Friday at the Pub in Pennsauken.

This Friday's event will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
