SHIFT and Voyage Investments, a Latino-owned real estate firm with Kensington roots are repurposing 3360 Frankford as the new home of El Centro de Estudiantes Big Picture Philadelphia School, a non-traditional, alternative high school that provides educational and occupational pathways for Philly’s Opportunity Youth, aged 16-21, who have previously disengaged from high school because traditional models of education don’t work for them.
El Centro is creating a supportive and nurturing school environment for Philly’s youth with future plans to add a workforce development center for the community. El Centro provides space where students build the academic, social, and workplace competence to find high-quality employment they enjoy, to successfully engage in postsecondary learning opportunities, and to productively give back both locally and globally.
We are presenting an opportunity for anyone over the age of 18 to invest in El Centro’s new home by using Small Change, a real estate investment crowdfunding platform. If you’d like to make a meaningful investment in the Harrowgate-Kensington neighborhood, go to Small Change to learn more.
