Community Engagement

Engagement Committee

Being part of the Navy Yard includes access to a diverse business community that offers opportunities not just for growth, but also initiatives to foster civic and corporate engagement in the community. Representatives from Navy Yard businesses meet quarterly as the Navy Yard Engagement Committee to discuss and plan community events and programs.

We are focused on four key areas of engagement: education, energy, sustainability, and community.

Adoption of a Philadelphia Public School

We support our Philadelphia neighbors and community partners. In collaboration with the School District of Philadelphia, the Navy Yard adopted the F. Amedee Bregy Elementary School, a K-8 school serving South Philadelphia since 1923. Our goal in this adoption is to support, collaborate in, and facilitate opportunities for the students of Bregy Elementary to achieve their full potential. The Navy Yard will support Bregy Elementary through initiatives such as school supply drives, career development, and events like an anti-bullying assembly in conjunction with the Harlem Globetrotters.
