Interfaith Youth Neighborhood Mosaic

June 17-21, 2019

A mosaic celebrates both the uniqueness of an individual tile and the collective pattern of many tiles together. This is the driving vision behind Interfaith Youth Neighborhood Mosaic; it is a celebration of an individual’s identity and the richness that identity brings to a diverse community. Through this exciting initiative, 25 middle school-aged youth spend one week exploring the rich diversity of South Philadelphia and gaining skills to engage across lines of difference.

Informed by the curriculum and over a decade of experience from its signature Walking the Walk Youth Initiative, Interfaith Philadelphia’s Mosaic program, enables students to experience their neighborhood in a new way, and learn about the religious and cultural diversity of their peers, while also strengthening their own identity and leadership skills. Throughout the week students will participate in:

  • Field trips to various local cultural and faith communities

  • Educational workshops focused on leadership and communication

  • Daily creative arts activities

Stay tuned for news and information about camp for summer 2020!
