Incoporating Student Voice into Orientation at El Centro
In 2009, Big Picture Philadelphia acquired a contract with the School District of Philadelphia to open El Centro de Estudiantes, an alternative school. Over the last three years, El Centro has enrolled an average of 150 students a year. All of our students participate in real world learning opportunities. Students gain motivation, parents/guardians are actively involved in their children’s education and hundreds of partners throughout the city provide real world opportunities and mentorship.
