Young Children’s Center for the Arts was founded in June, 1996, as a non-profit, full-service day care center. It is located on the grounds of historic Old Swede’s Church, and serves the needs of working families in Queen Village, South Philadelphia, Society Hill, Center City and Northern Liberties (just to name a few!)
“The mission of Young Children’s Center for the Arts is to educate and enrich the lives of infants, toddlers and preschoolers through the creative arts. It is our goal to provide young children of all backgrounds with experiences in Art, Music and Drama for educational, social and emotional development.”
YCCA prides itself on being one of the few area Early Childhood Centers that not only accepts children with disabilities including but embraces the opportunity. We successfully help these children to thrive both within our inclusive school environment and in the outside world.
“Wonderful teachers, fantastic art, music and movement programming and truly dedicated owners. Ycca is truly a unique school. The staff work tirelessly to provide a warm and enriching environment and my boys have grown and blossomed in so many ways.”
Since 1992, YouthBuild Philadelphia has helped former high school dropouts reclaim their education and build a brighter future for themselves through education, job training and service.
Our program has grown over the past two decades – from existing inside a single classroom to being one of the largest YouthBuild programs in the US – but we remain true to our core mission and purpose: helping motivated young people succeed.
Approximately 100 YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School students graduated on Aug. 25 during a ceremony held at Zion Baptist Church, 3600 N. Broad St.
The graduates, once high school dropouts, reclaimed their education by returning to school at YouthBuild and learning through rigorous academics, hands-on vocational training and community service.

WHYY is the leading public media organization in the Philadelphia Region, including Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and beyond. You can access us on television, radio, in the community and right here online.
We are deeply committed to the needs of young people. In fact, many people’s first experience with WHYY is watching our award-winning PBS Kids television programs as a child. We also offer multimedia instruction in our studios and at 28+ local schools. However, our children’s service is just the tip of the iceberg.
We produce more than a dozen local programs, such as Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Friday Arts and Radio Times. We offer a robust regional news service supported by a newsroom more than 50 people strong. We are also your local PBS and NPR station, bringing you long-time favorite programs, such as Antiques Roadshow, Morning Edition and more.
We bring together people in the community for more than 50 events each year. From critical conversations about civic issues with experts to “meet and greets” with big personalities, keep an eye on our events calendar for things to do all year round.
One of the things that makes us who we are is that we are Member-supported and a not-for-profit organization. Support from people in our community makes up about 50% of our operating budget, with additional support from leadership gifts, corporate underwriting and grants from foundations. This special funding formula allows us the creative freedom to create high-quality programs and services not possible anywhere else.
