About Us

Way Club started as a simple dream for Founder and Executive Director Monique Harrington. At 14-years old, she imagined having a local hangout, much like The Den in her favorite TV show Moesha, where her friends could learn, laugh, and grow together. Since then, Monique has set out to hone her skills and network to create that space, and Way Club is her vision brought to life.

What I love Most about Philly: I love that Philly is the birthplace of our nation and a city of “firsts” — first hospital, first library, first fire department. And now, the first upscale social club for high school-aged teenagers!

What I love Most about Philly: I love our diversity. Every kind of person, business, food, or idea is represented within the city. You’re never at a loss of variety traveling through Philly; parks, museums, historic landmarks, cheesesteaks, and water-ice – AND the city was designed so that you can get anywhere in 30 minutes at most. The City of Brotherly Love has loads of life and experiences to appreciate.

What I love Most about Philly: Even though I currently live out of state, I will always consider Philly to be my home. It is where I met my best friends, where I gave birth to my daughter, and is the place where most of my family members still reside. I will always love the culture and be proud of my city.

Supplier Diversity Manager, Aramark
Board Treasurer, Way Club
What I love Most about Philly: First and foremost, Philly is and will always be home. I love that we are a city of neighborhoods uniquely different but united by a love of sports, food and culture. I love that a Friday night in Manayunk, in Chestnut Hill, in South Philly or Center City will each give you a different but equally enjoyable experience.

What I love Most about Philly: What I love about Philly is that it is always changing, yet always stays the same in many ways. It is a vibrant, living and breathing work of art. It is and always will be my home.

What I love Most about Philly: The holidays — we know how to have a good time! There is nothing better than Ben Franklin Parkway being shut down for a big celebration, or going to the Christmas Village at Love Park/City Hall. Philly always has music, food, and fun for all!
