The Big Picture Philadelphia (BPP) model of education is unique, in part, because of our focus on interest-based, Real World Learning (RWL). Along with core classes, students engage in identity and career exploration two days/week under the guidance of a mentor in a field they are passionate about. By providing high school students with industry-specific, hands-on learning experiences, mentors prepare students for the workforce while also building nurturing relationships and growing their self-confidence. 

This year we have set a goal to recruit 100 new mentors in the first 100 days of the school year—but we need your help.  Please consider making an investment in our campaign:

  • $50: Covers background checks needed for a single mentor
  • $100: Covers a student’s transportation to their internship for a semester
  • $250: Covers New Mentor Orientation and Training
  • $500: Covers a professional networking event for 50 students and mentors
  • $1,500: Covers the cost of our 2nd Annual Opportunity Career Fair
  • $10,000: Covers the cost of a certification-granting internship for 12 students
