Manhattan Youth Services Goes to UPenn


In collaboration with the Extended School Day program at the High School for Dual Language & Asian Studies, CPC Manhattan's In-School Youth students attended a college tour of UPenn. Founded by Benjamin Franklin, the UPenn is one of the eight Ivy League schools in the North East.

Art Building

Charles Adams Fine Arts Halls houses art studios, digital animation labs, extensive photography and video studios and a public gallery. Participants learne that the bronze sculptures of hands and tools serve as inspiration to the fine arts majors who call this building home. 


The Quadrangle is UPenn’s largest dormitory that houses over 1,400 students. Look at that amazing architecture.

Overall, this trip was a complete success. Aside from allowing students to visit a college outside New York State, students were able to experience the culture and beauty of Philadelphia.
