  • Joint Happy Hour with ASHE Delaware Valley - December 7, 2017

    Thursday, December 7, 2017, the YMF teamed up with ASHE Delaware Valley for a joint happy hour at Conshohocken Brewing Company in Bridgeport, PA. There were around 40 attendees that enjoyed happy hour specials and an amazing selection of appetizers. It was nice to have the event outside of the city, so that members that can't usually make it to events in the city could have a chance to come out and network. Also, it's always exciting to try out new locations and create some new connections!

    This is one of our annually recurring joint events with ASHE. We look forward to working with them again next year, including for the Adopt-A-Highway clean-up event this spring! Click the picture below for more photos from the event:



  • Philabundance Hunger Relief Center - November 21, 2017

    On Tuesday, November 21st, several members of the YMF went to the Philabundance Hunger Relief Center in Southeast Philadelphia to help sort food that's been recently donated in preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday! Members primarily worked in the facility's refrigeration area sorting and packaging 10,000 lbs of perishables for distribution! Everyone had a great time and left feeling like they'd made a difference.

    The YMF has a proud history of serving the Philadelphia community through Philabundance: we've made charitbale contributions numerous times, both in the form of money from the Winter Social and canned goods from our CANstruction effort. It was great to add a donation of our time to that list. We thank Philabundance for all they do for Philadelphia and look forward to working with them again in the future!

  • Viaduct Tour - October 25,2017

    On Wednesday, October 25th, the YMF toured the Viaduct Rail Park and got to see firsthand the progress of Phase 1 of the transformation of abandoned elevated rail lines to a new recreational facility. The tour was led by Angelo Waters and Urban Engineers who were the designers of the project. 16 Younger Members got to see some of the early structure work and the beginning of the landscaping which will made this park a destination for years to come once it opens in 2018. Everyone is excited to see what the finished project will look like. Big thanks also to our Philly YMF Technical Events Co-chairs Scott Cepietz, PE (Michael Baker) and Kevin Walsh (Pennoni) for organizing the tour.

    It's worth noting that this was the YMF's first-ever "Members Only" event. We value the input and participation of all of Philadelphia's young civil engineers, but wanted to take an opportunity to especially thank our paid members. We expect to have other member-exclusive events in the future, so if you'd like to attend please make sure to renew your membership!

  • Welcome Back Bowling - October 24, 2017

    On Tuesday, October 24th, the YMF celebrated the start of another school year, for the local civil engineering college students, with our Welcome Back Bowling event! This has become one of our most popular annual events, with this year drawing a crowd of nearly 40 people, including students from Widener, Villanova, Temple, and Drexel Universities. Plenty of pizza was consumed and a lively bowling competition was held among the students!

    Congratulations to Mohammed Hammoudeh, from Temple University, for having the highest student bowling score! He earned the much-coveted YMF Bowling trophy and a photo with the YMF's College Contact Co-Chairs, Belinda Lester and Jake Nichols. The YMF would like to wish the best of luck to all the students with their studies this year and we look forward to seeing you at future events!
