About Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education
The mission of Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education is to create opportunity for under-resourced youth of the Greater Philadelphia Region to prosper in life.
We accept and take ownership of our individual responsibilities to honor commitments made to ourselves, our teammates, and our community.
We are committed to developing and delivering world class services that maximize the impact of Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education programs on the lives of our students.
We welcome students, staff, and stakeholders from all racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and cultural backgrounds to build lives and unite communities together.
We exemplify honesty and fairness by always striving to do the right thing, even when nobody is watching.
We provide the inspiration, resources, and guidance that allows young people to play, grow and learn so that they can maximize their potential.
We have built a foundation of trust and respect that fosters camaraderie, creativity and collaboration to help us be more effective together than we are individually.
