STAY TRUE is a non-profit organization based in Philadelphia dedicated to offering under-privileged, at-risk youth the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to become powerful agents of social/political change in their communities.
STAY TRUE offers after school, extra-curricular, and weekend programs that combine academics and activism to give students an amazing service experience.
The objectives of STAY TRUE are three-fold:
1. Students will complete an engaging academic curriculum that will allow them to learn about and reflect on the social and political issues that most deeply impact their lives and communities.
2. Students will use their knowledge of social/political issues to affect change by first participating, then developing and executing community service projects throughout the Philadelphia region.
3. Students will participate in a wide variety of new activities that encourage a continued life of public service, as well as self-exploration, self-confidence, and self-discipline.
