Mission: BuildaBridge International is dedicated to bringing hope and healing to vulnerable children, families, and communities in the tough places of the world through direct arts-integrated intervention (social, spiritual, educational, and therapeutic) and cross-cultural service. BuildaBridge International  motivates, enlists, trains and connects those who have the desire to serve others through their artistic gifts with those in greatest need.
Programs: Community: A direct social service arts program providing arts-integrated experiences in transitional homes, summer arts camps, and after-school. Discovery inspires youth by encouraging them to explore their creative potential and provides the resources for them to develop artistically, socially, and academically in the transitional and homeless shelters in Philadelphia. Healing Day provides safe avenues through day long workshops for adults and service workers to express their feelings and cope with traumatic experiences. Artology is a 7-week summer camp, fusing art, science, and environmental awareness, all to promote innovation, and prepare under-served urban students for a bright future in an emerging “green” economy. Hands-on dynamic learning is achieved by utilizing Philadelphia (its neighborhoods, parks, and museums) as an interactive classroom.

BuildaBridge is a phenomenal organization with a true commitment to changing lives. I began my work with BuildaBridge in 2008 as an intern. During that time I was so impressed with the leadership and their commitment to developing a learning organization that I knew I needed to serve as a volunteer with BuildaBridge, donating my time and money to this work. Through its community and international service programs, BuildaBridge provides high level arts education to children and families in tough places throughout the world. Program evaluation is significant component of the work that BuildaBridge does, as they are always looking at the impact and efficiency of their programs. Holistic child development, speaking blessings and nurturing the creative spirit are key qualities that set BuildaBridge apart from other Non-profit organizations.
