After school program in Germantown offers students chance to create works of art

    A unique after school program in Philadelphia’s Germantown neighborhood is giving high school students the chance to create works of art to be given to those less fortunate.

    NewsWorks’ Brian Hickey wrote about the project, “The Stained Glass Project: Windows That Open Doors,” earlier this month, which recently earned the attention of Mayor Michael Nutter.

    Recently, members of the program traveled to New Orleans with 12 stained glass windows made for a school that was rebuilt after it was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

    “I hope you all understand that you did something very special and very important,” Nutter told a group of students during an assembly at Germantown High School earlier this month.
