Tiny WPA’s mission is to uniquely connect and empower individuals of all ages through community-driven participatory design-build activities and its collaborative workshop at 4017 Lancaster Avenue in West Philadelphia. Its programmatic activities, neighborhood revitalization efforts, design-build projects, and creative placemaking initiatives vary in scope, but all are small in scale, community based, needs-driven, action-oriented and collaborative. Its Building Hero Project provides youth and adults from diverse social and economic backgrounds with innovative, year-round training in design, collaboration, leadership, fabrication, and entrepreneurship. In addressing specific problems and transforming their community, participants gain valuable life-long design and leadership skills to become the next generation of civic change agents.
