I recently began working for West Park Cultural Center as a ceramic instructor and a program like this is necessary for the Philadelphia community. I feel so privileged to work with talented, caring and respectful students and parents everyday. Coming to work feels like a second home and family. I look forward to my job each day. I am also thankful to work with a great and supportive staff as well!
The West Park Cultural Center is an organization that I am truly pleased to have worked with. It is one of the few organizations of this type that reaches children and families in the community where they live. It seems that all too often children in underserved communities are often left out. This is not the case with West Park Community Center, here all children are served. Keep up the good work!
West Park Cultural Center has provided outstanding arts and education programs for children and youth for 14 years with amazing results. I am proud to have this organization in West Philadelphia.
West Park offers the under served youth of our city a wonderful opportunity that would otherwise less likely be afforded to them, and for that and the due diligence to service youth and family in the community i nominate West Park Cultural Center a 5 star Great Non Profit
Everytime i work with West Park Cultural, it is a wonderful and pray experience for both myself and those of whom we serve. Recently having the pleasure of coordinating the summer camp Camp Ginkgo i can truly say that West Park's dedication to culture and raise positive and productive youth from Philadelphia is unmatched and flat out admirable. I want to be attached to such greatness for as long as it's possible...ten thumbs up from me!
By chance, we happened to stumble across the West Park Cultural Center. We were hesitant to enroll because the program was located about an hour and a half away from home. We took a leap of faith and enrolled in the after-school ceramics class and LOVED it. On the very first day, Janice gave my daughters the gift of loving ceramics. Ron and Betty are incredibly encouraging and supportive of all the students. As a parent, I was excited to participate in an environment that fostered positive role-modeling, encouragement, and creative fun. I wish this organization would grow and start another branch in the NE section of Philadelphia.
The WPAC is a true gem. The summer program is a great component that is affordable. The experiences had by the students will last a life time. They are being exposed to the beauty of nature and art techniques that will inspire them in other areas of their development.
This conceptual and in practice non profit is a gem in the West Park community and beyond. I have witnessed firsthand, how exposure to music and the ceramic art forms has positively transformed the youth who participated in this program. Their exposure has taught them not only a new craft, but prepared them as advocates and prepped them for leadership roles in which they have spoken on behalf of the program.
The West Park Cultural Center is an organization that I am truly pleased to be involved with. It is an organization that reaches children and families in the community where they live. West Park seeks to expose their clients to the wonders of the arts, education and cultural enrichment. For a small program they have a large impact on the community and its children. The West Park Cultural center runs after school programs, senior programs, children summer camps and they host a large summer festival every year in the community called the West Park Arts Fest. This is a good program to get your children involved in.
