Satell Institute-Nonprofit Partner Youth Enrichment Series (YES)
Making a difference for K-12 Students, Caregivers, and the Community

Nonprofit Affiliates:

A superior education for children has always been a key virtue of the free enterprise system and has played an important role in leading our country to continuing greatness. Unfortunately, our communities are facing a time of educational crisis, heightened by the pandemic and the challenges caused by distance learning.

In response to these challenges, the Satell Institute has collaborated with its Nonprofit Affiliates – the subject matter experts who have developed an expansive and diverse selection of highly specialized and engaging programming – to present the Youth Enrichment Series (YES). This unique initiative harnesses the strengths of our region’s impressive nonprofits to address the national crisis in education through virtual enrichment programming for K-12 students in our community.

These high-quality, interactive courses dive deep into a broad-spectrum of subjects – Science, Technology, Arts & Culture, Financial Literacy & Life Readiness Skills, History, Civic Engagement, Leadership, and Health & Wellness, and more, all aimed towards enhancing and enriching the learning of the Greater Philadelphia region’s young people. The courses will also provide age-appropriate interactions that address the social isolation that many young people are facing while fostering and inspiring students to continue to learn and develop. The YES online catalog can be found at

A Benefit for your Constituents
Several Satell Institute Corporate and Foundation Members have already committed to providing scholarships for students, allowing children from all over our region and from all socioeconomic backgrounds to experience these remarkable courses and valuable tools at little to no cost. As an organization dedicated to serving our region’s young people and their communities, this is an incredible opportunity to share with your constituents. 

We believe that the YES program will have a positive impact on the future of each participating student and their communities. Now is the time to make our communities better for all.

Thank you for joining the collective force of businesses and foundations partnering with nonprofits to serve the greater good. We appreciate your support.

Opportunities for our Corporate Members

We congratulate our Members who received the 2021 Civic 50 distinction. 

Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia

The Satell Institute is proud to partner with the Philadelphia Foundation and local chambers of commerce to bring the Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia – a regional adaptation of the national program created by the Points of Light that recognizes civic-minded companies that are using their time, talent, and resources to drive social impact in their communities – to our Corporate Members. 

The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia is a no-cost, self-assessment survey, powered by True Impact’s secure, confidential web-based measurement tool.

Survey results will provide participants with a deeper understanding of how their current CSR efforts align with best practices and organizations of similar size and capacity in the region. All data shared during the assessment will remain private. Once the data is compiled, participants will be ranked among the top 50 civic-oriented businesses in the region. 

The honorees will be publicly announced in June 2021.

Why Participate?

The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia allows SI Members to:

  • Measure and benchmark their efforts,
  • Hear about additional practices in CSR and corporate citizenship,
  • Develop a roadmap for continued impact, and
  • Have social impact and philanthropic efforts recognized.
