Tiny WPA places youth and adults at the forefront of stimulating community engagement and civic innovation in Philadelphia by empowering them to design and build improvements to the public spaces, schools and micro-infrastructure in their neighborhoods. Through deep community partnership, Tiny WPA has grown and supported a diverse multigenerational community of civic change agents known as Building Heroes—who want to learn how to design-build great things, make a difference in their community(s), and through design lead others in making Philadelphia a better, safer, healthier, more equitable, and prosperous place to live, work and play.
