In our continuing efforts to be good neighbors, the following is a list of the community service opportunities. As many of you know, Penn Volunteers In Public Service (Penn VIPS) posts a list of volunteer opportunities. These opportunities are developed from the many requests we get from the surrounding community to be partners in a particular initiative and/or sometimes to provide assistance.
Please send information to firstname.lastname@example.org regarding any filled and unfilled internships and summer hire positions you may have available for high school students. Please contact me via e-mail or call (215) 898-2020 to volunteer for any of these programs. Thank you for your continued support.
