Bridging Cultures

Project Bridging Cultures at South Philadelphia High School 


For more than six years, the Welcoming Center's Project Bridging Cultures provided a wealth of academic and social support services to both immigrant and American-born students at South Philadelphia High School.

Evaluations of Bridging Cultures showed significant positive effects on students' academic achievement and social integration.

The program was closed at the end of the 2010-11 school year due to the unavailability of funds to support it.
