Mosaic is going online! In order to protect the health of our students, families, and staff, and in keeping with public health recommendations, we’ve decided not to hold our Mosaic program in person this year. Instead, we’ve developed a fun and enriching online experience, featuring virtual games, activities, interfaith experiences, and arts workshops online, as well as a special arts and activities kit created for each student. See below for more information on how we have adapted this program, and for a link to sign up your student!
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, 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, learn about the religious and cultural diversity of their peers, and strengthen their own identity and leadership skills.
WHAT: Five days of activities, games, arts, interfaith learning and more! Each student will also receive a special box of activities and art supplies to complete throughout the week.
WHO: All rising 6th-9th graders who live in the city of Philadelphia are invited to participate!
WHEN: August 17-21, 10 am - 12:30 pm each day
This program is being offered for FREE thanks to generous support from the Mary Beth Gallagher Youth Legacy Fund.
We hope your students will join us for this unique and enriching program!
