PCCY launches The Picasso Project, a mini-grant arts program. Schools from across the city apply for the grants, which are funded through individual donors, corporations and foundations.

When the state announces it will refund a portion of personal income tax payments, PCCY launches the “Give Back the Give Back” campaign to encourage people to donate their refund payments to programs for children.

PCCY continues its Courtwatch newsletter which trains citizen volunteers to sit in on Juvenile Court hearings and issue annual reports on juvenile justice in Philadelphia.
