The Interfaith Social Change Movement is a non-profit 501 C3 coalition of religious institutions, business owners, educators, and community leaders throughout the Philadelphia area. Our mission and purpose is built upon the foundation that the theological common thread of all religion is to alleviate the suffering of humanity and to help our children develop toward educational excellence.
If it is true that our children are most impressionable at an early age, then we believe it’s quite elementary to start providing opportunities of life changing support and mentoring that will not only help decrease our alarming dropout rates, reduce truancy, change negative behaviors or involvement in criminal activities recently seen in flash mobs incidents, but also maximize their overall future success in developing toward their full potential, which benefits our community at large.
The cornerstone of our work with disadvantaged children is Interfaith’s innovative and historic Business and Career Exploration Program (BCEP)
Our program is both state of the art and one of a kind in the history of the Philadelphia School District, in that it seeks to nurture and encourages the career aspirations of young people at the critical juncture between adolescence and young adulthood, though providing them with opportunities to interact and engage in activities with strong, providing role models and mentors with various Universities and Colleges.
