The Inspiring Leaders Program

The Inspiring Leaders Program is a student led, civic engagement program that seeks to increase 9th and 10th grade Philadelphia high school student’s confidence, competence and awareness of socially relevant issues. Students will develop marketing, budgeting and communication skills in order to effectively and efficiently plan and execute a service project of their choice. All sessions will be held on Saturday mornings on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania.

ILP Facilitators

Facilitators are college student leaders from the Greater Philadelphia Area. They serve as first hand mentors to 9th and 10th grade Philadelphia High School students. Facilitators support and coach Greater Philadelphia high school students on how to organize service projects in their communities. Moreover, facilitators assist students in developing many of the skills they do not gain during their time in a traditional classroom.
