Rhawnhurst Turning Point

Center for Youth and Young Adults in NE Philly

Summer Program 2014

We offered 6 classes through our Hoffman Art Program in the Summer of 2014: Choir, Crafts, Creative Writing, Knitting, Mime & Mixed Media.

In July and August 2014 we were open Tuesdays and Thursdays so youth could have a safe and welcoming place to simply "Drop-In" during the Summer.

On August 2nd, RTP youth and volunteers partnered with Rhawnhurst Presbyterian Church and "Heeding God's Call" to set up "The Memorial To the Lost," a tribute to the 201 individuals murdered by illegal gun violence in Philadelphia in 2013.

Youth and volunteers assembled 60 "Back to School Packs" which were then donated to and distributed at Feast of Justice.

On August 23, 2104 we held our 3rd Annual Showcase, with youth artwork on display, performances from our summer classes, fall programming updates, and more.
