As the new executive director of the city’s Youth Commission, Temple 2012 graduate Jamira Burley hopes to engage both young people and adults in a conversation about the future, to make the city and the lives of its young people better. “There is no longer a village raising a child. A lot of young people in Philadelphia are raising themselves. Adults nowadays don’t realize the plight of young people,” Burley said.
