“When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring communities.”
- The Dalai Lama
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
- Barack Obama
The Universal Street Academy is dedicated to positive change in our community so that it inspires the hearts and minds of our youth to achieve what was previously thought unachievable. We work to encourage our neighbors and community members to take positive action. We build to inspire those who have thought or walked along a destructive path and to present an alternative to them. We build to invigorate our elders and give them a sense of safety and security they have long missed. Located at 3306 Germantown Avenue, in the heart of North Philadelphia, the Universal Street Academy has set up home with a vision of community resurrection.
Our goal is to be a shining beacon of light in the face of dim and troubled times. The dedicated men, women, and children of the Universal Street Academy are prepared to return our community to where it once was. Youth and Adult Education programs, Art programs, Martial Arts and Fitness programs, Community service, Health & Dietary programs, Referral services, Counseling services, and Social events are among the many ways the Universal Street Academy intends to make a difference in our beloved city of Philadelphia.
We have made much sacrifice thus far, yet, much more will be required. This is why, with great humility and optimism, we ask you to assist us in inspiring the world, one community at a time, by making a weekly or monthly pledge or one time donation. The Universal Street Academy has created an account, which allows you to contribute according to your own financial means to the cause. Regardless if you reside a block away from our location or 3000 miles away, all people are our people. The world is one community and if we don’t awaken the greatness in the people of the world, then who will? There is no mystery; we are the change we seek. Whatever, you can commit, regardless of how large or small is sincerely appreciated. If for any reason you cannot contribute today, please share our cause with others.
The Men, Women, and Children of The Universal Street Academy, 2013
