Launching in Fall 2021, the CbK Innovation League will be open to 100 students citywide. Similar to a traditional sports season, students will attend weekly practices and events, competing with other teams across the city. Students will be assigned Community Innovation Coaches and tech mentors to help them gain knowledge and navigate innovation challenges. At the end of the season, the teams with the highest rankings will compete in the Innovation Bowl -- the league’s culminating championship event -- for awards and prizes.

The Innovation League is free of charge and open to students between the ages of 12-18 living in Philadelphia. Interested students must be registered online by an adult using the form below. Students will be able to select a team within their community on a first-come, first-served basis.
