Calling all middle school students to join us for Mosaic 2023!
Informed by the curriculum and over a decade of experience from its signature Walking the Walk Youth Initiative, as well as its Passport to Understanding practices, Interfaith Philadelphia’s Mosaic program provides the opportunity for students to experience their neighborhoods in a new way as they learn about the religious and cultural diversity of their peers, and strengthen their own identity and leadership skills.
Students will gather for a week of art, games, interfaith learning, and more! Each student will explore the rich diversity of the Philadelphia region, reflect on their own unique identity, strengthen their leadership and communication skills, and build friendships across lines of difference.
All rising 6th-9th graders who live in the Greater Philadelphia region are invited to participate, with priority registration given to those students in the Crafting Community neighborhoods of South Philadelphia, Kensington and West Philadelphia.
Just as a mosaic celebrates both the uniqueness of an individual tile and the collective pattern of many tiles together, Interfaith Youth Neighborhood Mosaic celebrates the beauty of each student’s identity and the richness that identity brings to a diverse community. We are excited to host this program, and hope to see your student there!
