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!
