Film Summary:

The After School Program in Olney works with community organizations and artists to create an environment that addresses the multiple ways children and their families need support. The imaginative video documents how the artists and teachers, through various art, music and dance projects, nurture the development of children and offer essential ingredients of their "growing garden."

Founded in 1990, Urban Bridges at St. Gabrielís "[provides] nurturing educational opportunities for people of all ages in the creative arts, computer technology and literacy." The program is located in the Olney-Feltonville section of Philadelphia, and provides after-school programs focusing on literacy, the visual and performing arts, and technology, for approximately 352 children.
