We’ve set a goal to impact 5,000 MORE kids through our Young Heroes Outreach Program (YHOP)… and with your help WE CAN!
Each school year, we send our educators directly into Philadelphia’s most underserved schools to teach students critical leadership skills, and empower them to use their First Amendment Rights to make positive changes in their school and community. This year our educators are teaching in twenty Title 1 schools, and more schools are waiting.
Please help us continue to change the lives of Philly Kids!
These Young Heroes made a persuasive argument for why every child deserves a safe place to play. I feel privileged to represent such an amazing school.
-Council President Darrell Clarke
Even though you are a kid, you can make great things happen, or at least you can be the spark to ignite even greater things.

Strength & Fragility: The Story of the NLM highlights the life of the Museum’s founder Irvin J. Borowsky, and how his belief in universal equality and liberty, as well as his passion for contemporary glass art, led to the creation of the National Liberty Museum. Strength & Fragility includes engaging archival material, stunning glass artwork, and immersive soundscapes. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a magnificent 9-foot-high glass canopy by Ulla Darni, entitled “The Peace Portal.” It features a custom sound bath experience, Seeds of Love, written and produced by Philadelphia-based sound artist Luna Maye, in collaboration with composer Alfiya Glow.

Since the NLM’s founding, a major component of our work has been our series of annual awards programs honoring the everyday heroes who live among us. This exhibition celebrates teachers, students, police officers, firefighters & first-responders, and healthcare professionals who have demonstrated extraordinary courage and made a difference in the lives of others.
