Serving students from under-resourced communities in the Greater Philadelphia area

Mission

We advance educational equity by building long-term partnerships with students, families, communities, and schools to create experiences outside of school that inspire the joy of learning. 

As children grow from kindergarten through high school, Horizons’ out-of-school time academic and enrichment programs transform young lives by providing a safe and encouraging space for kids to experience success.

Values

Inspiring Minds: Children learn best when learning is fun. Horizons fosters a joyful environment full of academic, artistic, and athletic activities that inspire young minds and build a love of learning.

Building Community: Children need the support of a community to reach for their dreams. Horizons brings together families, teachers, and public and private institutions to make a long-term commitment to every child, starting after kindergarten and continuing until high school and often beyond.

Transforming Lives: Children need more than academic skills to succeed. Horizons transforms the way students see themselves and the world and empowers them by providing opportunities.
