Our ability to make a transformative impact on young people's lives and futures increased significantly in July 2011, when Philadelphia Futures and White-Williams Scholars merged. The union brought together the resources, expertise and supporters of two highly effective organizations with rich legacies and strong records of success. To fully operationalize the merger and leverage this increased opportunity we launched a comprehensive strategic planning process. Our Strategic Plan Executive Summary - Futures Forward - provides a thorough overview of the Strategic Plan and the priorities that have been brought into perspective for the newly joined organization.
