Phoenixville Area Positive Alternatives (PAPA) is a non-profit community-based organization that offers year-round academic, athletic, and personal enrichment programs for students in the Phoenixville Area School District.
Established in 1995, PAPA has enriched the lives of thousands of Phoenixville-area youth through programs with proven positive impacts on self-esteem and life-skills development.
PAPA is the only formal, structured program for at-risk youth aged 10-16 in the Phoenixville area. Primarily a volunteer, grass-roots organization, PAPA works closely with the Phoenixville Area School District, the Borough of Phoenixville, and other local organizations to create a positive, effective, and motivating force in the Phoenixville community.
