The goal of the World Heritage Education Program is to educate Philadelphia’s youth to be global kids with roots.
The fate of our heritage will soon be in our children’s hands. Through the World Heritage Education Program, we aim to broaden their understanding of their and other cultures and to prepare them to be successful in a rapidly globalizing world.
