All our programs are free to Philadelphia youth, that's why we need you!  We can't do this on our own. We rely on the generosity of individuals, churches, foundations, and corporations to keep this work going.  

See the many ways that you can make a difference!

Take the #YearOfGiving Challenge:


$5 a week/$20 a month.  Give up that $5 cappuccino on Tuesdays to give a SEMESTER of ADVOCATE LEADERSHIP training in our arts, literacy, and athletics afterschool Advocate Leadership Institute.


$10 a week/$40 a month. Bring your lunch on Wednesdays and put the $10 you would have spent on a cheesesteak and fries towards BUILDING UP NORTH PHILLY YOUTH AND OUR NORTH PHILADELPHIA NEIGHBORHOOD.



$15 a week/$60 a month. Instead of heading out on Friday, stay in with a loved one, a good book, and a warm blanket, and think about how your $15 is helping North Philadelphia YOUTH PREPARE FOR COLLEGE SUCCESS.
