Greater Philadelphia Extracurricular Collaborative
We nurture the ecosystem that nurtures youth.
By bringing together a broad coalition of stakeholders, GPEC seeks to improve the quality and reach of the out-of-school time and extracurricular ecosystem in the Greater Philadelphia region, so that children reap benefits across every part of their lives.
GPEC aims to develop a unified voice to advocate on behalf of education, out-of-school time, and social service providers.
Educating decision-makers and advocating for the importance of extracurricular learning in youth development.
Pursuing shared goals and fostering accountability so our members can overcome challenges and seize opportunities.
Providing our members with the tools they need to build stronger organizations and pursue collective action.
Coordinating services and communication to equitably address issues faced by children and families.
