Showcasing the importance of the University of Pennsylvania’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships’ many collaborations in West Philadelphia, a Community Partnership Festival was held at West Philadelphia High School on April 19. The Festival, part of the Center’s 25th anniversary celebrations, welcomed more than 500 people, including students from seven of its University-assisted community schools, their parents, and other friends from West Philadelphia, along with Penn students, faculty, and staff.

Students from Comegys, Hamilton, Mitchell, and Lea Elementary schools and Sayre and Robeson High schools traveled to West Philadelphia High School and rotated through hands-on science experiments, sports, games, and interactive lessons in basic first aid led largely by Penn undergraduate and graduate students.
