The Building Hero Project


The Building Hero Project is a community design leadership initiative for youth and adults to become skilled leaders and change agents, empowering them to help make their neighborhoods and Philadelphia better place to live through design. Through innovative training in design, collaboration, leadership, fabrication, and entrepreneurship, the Building Heroes gain the life skills, experience, inter-connectedness, and exposure to rich opportunities that enable them to make and do great things in Philadelphia and beyond.

The Building Hero Project is support in part by The Barra Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, Stanley Black & Decker, and StartUp PHL, among other individual donors.
