BuildaBridge is a non-profit 501(c)3 arts education and intervention organization that engages the transformative power of the arts to bring hope and healing to children, families, and communities in the tough places of the world. BuildaBridge motivates, enlists, trains, and connects those with artistic gifts with those in greatest need.
BuildaBridge accomplishes this mission through direct arts-based educational & therapeutic intervention in after-school, Saturday and summer programs; and through training artists in the “BuildaBridge Classroom” a trauma-informed, hope-infused, child-centered replicable model that includes a restorative justice approach for working with youth. BuildaBridge is unique in that it is one of the only organizations working with the Philadelphia’s homeless and abused children & families as a primary constituency on a consistent, long-term basis through arts-based methods. This same work takes place internationally--through our alliances--in Guatemala, Haiti, Nicaragua, Malaysia, and Kenya.
BuildaBridge's mission is twofold: Bring hope and healing through the arts and Engage artists in service to others. In other words, we use the arts to help people in difficult situations to heal from trauma and find hope for their future. Our formula, or basic philosophy, can be summed up: CREATIVE ART-MAKING for KIDS in TOUGH PLACES with ARTIST MENTORS=HOPE AND HEALING. Our motto for all teaching artists and mentors is Speaking a Blessing into the life of the child through the arts.
