Our25th Anniversary Partnership Festival took place at West Philadelphia High School on April 19, 2018. The Festival hosted approximately 500 youth and their families from seven university-assisted community schools in West Philadelphia and also included a Health and Wellness resource fair with partner organizations. The students participated in hands-on science, gardening, games and arts activities and performances. The evening culminated with an Awards program presented to the K-12, Penn students, and staff.
The 15th Annual Academically Based Community Service Summit took place April 27, 2018. In addition to poster presentations by students in ABCS courses, this year’s summit featured a student panel co-hosted by the Student Committee on Undergraduate Education (SCUE), which focused on how ABCS can help realize the purposes of a Penn education.
We also celebrated our anniversary with special events on Alumni Day (May 12, 2018) and with other alumni-sponsored activities throughout spring 2018.
