iCamp Values

What are the Values of iCamp?

iCamp believes in the creative power of youth and the political power of media. We value Philadelphia as a diverse urban center, with all of its wonderful beauty, its legacy of success in the face of stunning economic and racial inequities. We want to help students center their voice, their vision, and their work around issues that affect them in their community. 

We are proudly race-conscious; we recognize the weight of individual prejudice and the heritage of systemic oppression that allows too few to reach their full potential. The amazing diversity of Philadelphia is a great source of its strength and its promise for tomorrow, and we want to help Philly’s youth deliver on that promise. All members of our project, Staff and Students, commit to the values and ethos of iCamp, including its social justice mission and endeavor to be anti-racist, gender-inclusive, and student-affirming.
