All OF our programs are free to Philadelphia youth, but We can't do this on our own. We rely on the generosity of individuals, churches, foundations, and corporations to HELP US keep this work going. HERE ARE SOME CREATIVE ways you can HELP US make a difference!

Take the #YearOfGiving Challenge:


$5 a week/$20 a month.  Give up that $5 cappuccino on Tuesdays to give a student a SEMESTER of ADVOCATE LEADERSHIP TRAINING in our arts, literacy, and athletics programs after school at the 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 toward EMPOWERING NORTH PHILLY YOUTH AND THE BUILDING UP OF OUR COMMUNITY.


$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 AND BEYOND.
