Connecting campus to community.
We are a network of over 25 colleges and universities that strengthens service-learning, civic engagement, and community partnership in Philadelphia, connecting academics with community involvement.

The Non-Profit track places up 12 members in various capacity building projects at local nonprofit organizations. Learn more about that program here. The Education track places up 16 members in public schools, serving as Community Partnership Coordinators. Four additional VISTAs are placed in various School District offices.
