Community Relations and Special Event Manager
Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown
Kellan White, a Philadelphia native, comes from a long line of public servants, but as one of the City's prominent millennials, he is making his own path and working to represent the interest of Philadelphia's youth and young adults. Kellan was born and raised in Mt. Airy, but in 2004 he left the neighborhood to pursue a degree in sports and recreation management at North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After graduation he spent short stints in a few cities, but Kellan realized that he was a Philadelphian First and made the decision to return home. While working as the youth director with the Christian Street YMCA in South Philly, Kellan realized that his purpose was to recreate a Philadelphia that children and families who live here can and should be proud of. He later served in the office of Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds-Brown, the first woman elected citywide in Philadelphia. As co-director for the Philadelphia Chapter of New Leaders Council, a national political- entrepreneurship program, Kellan has worked to educate and empower a new generation of leaders. One of Kellan's proudest accomplishments was creating the Pattison-Leader Ball, which is the first event of its kind to celebrate young, politically-minded people in Philadelphia during the annual PA Society weekend.
