Our mission is to enhance and enrich the lives of youth at risk by exposing them to new concepts and ideas through various enrichment and educational activities.
To raise up the next generation of youth and provide them with the educational and developmental tools to create a system that will promote self sustainable change in urban communities.
As I Plant This Seed was organized in 2012 in the Hunting Park section of north Philadelphia. We initially started just as an idea to help the community which quickly developed into a vision lead by our founder Ryan Harris. We did not operate under the name As I Plant This Seed until November of 2013. Since 2012 each year in August, As I Plant This Seed undertakes a back-to-school supply drive, where K-12 students receive the necessary supplies to successfully complete the grade they were entering. Later in the year in December we had our second event ever which was our annual Christmas banquet. These two events are our biggest events to this day which is servicing 500 plus people each event each year. over the past five years we have collaborated countless organizations and added many more events that provides recourses for the community and youth
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to help those in need. Together, we can make a difference.
