Giving Back – Community Development in Philadelphia

Life is not a spectator sport. It is so important to take part in the world around us, to assume an active role in not just living in our society, but in making it better. The experience is enriching, fulfilling, and inspires personal growth, but most of all it is contagious. When you give back it starts a ripple effect that inspires others to follow suit. The world is so much better when you are an active, engaged participant.

A City of History and Wonder

Philadelphia, it’s Greek for “brotherly love” which is how it got its nickname “The City of Brotherly Love.” It’s the home of the Liberty Bell and where the nation’s first library, founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1731, resides. The city has a large arts community and the commitment to the development and promotion of fine arts is apparent with the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the first art school and art museum in the United States, it opened in 1805. It is also considered the Mural Capital of the U.S. due to the incredible 2,000 outdoor murals, and is thought to have more public art than any other city in the country. When it comes down to it though, it’s the people of Philadelphia that make it so great.
