This year, America has witnessed many tragic acts in childhood education. The events of Sandy Hook Elementary School have taken a way the opportunity for innocent children to live their dreams through education. As this devastating event has captured the heart of our nation, elementary school students in our own backyard of Philadelphia also struggle to receive an education. It is our time to give back to the community.

The Philadelphia Learning Center, located in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has helped elementary school students of G.W. Childs Elementary School develop useful skills, positive characters, and attainable dreams, despite negative circumstances. This year, the Black Wharton Undergraduate Association will be honoring the US Dream Academy Program. The Dream Academy Program is 

a six-week summer program that offers golf lessons, photography, dance, and music programming in addition to Dream Academy program standards:  skill, character, and dream-building activities. 

This year, join us at the 2013 GALA - Galvanizing Adolescents Towards a Legacy of Achievement, on Friday April 5th at 7pm at the Inn at Penn on 36th and Walnut. Help us recognize the US Dream Academy Program. Together we can make a difference.
