North Light Community Center

175 Green Lane,  Philadelphia  pa,  19127
Mission Statement

Our Mission is to enable people of all ages and abilities in our Northwest Philadelphia communities, especially those most in need, to reach their full potential as productive and responsible citizens through initiatives that support and enrich children, teens, and families.

North Light Community Center is a place where children learn and play in a safe and nurturing environment, teens learn life and entrepreneurial skills to realize their full potential, and parents seek counsel and civic engagement. In 1936, a principal and police captain founded NL as North Light Boys' Club. In the 1940s, NL expanded to include girls and social supports. Today, NL is a member of the Federation of Neighborhood Centers. Programs include a state-licensed childcare facility with year-round school-age programs, arts and recreation, emergency supports, on-site tutoring, youth leadership training and workforce development, parenting education and access to technology. Programs nourish personal empowerment, help reduce high-risk behaviors and positively impact youth, strengthen families and enrich our community. Driven by a compassionate Board of Directors, dedicated staff, and a talented pool of more than 650 volunteers offering 10,000 hours of service annually, North Light is an essential community hub.
