Dear Penn Community,

Congratulations on the outstanding work performed at the Penn-West Philadelphia Community Partnership Celebration Day at the Sayre School (58th and Walnut Streets). Many of you volunteered and supported this worthy cause. Additionally, during the month of October, over 500 volunteers cleaned and helped to beautify public schools for Philadelphia Cares Day and Penn volunteers participated in and made a donation to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Walk. Thank you for your continued support.

Below are the most recent list of volunteer opportunities. If you would like to volunteer for any of the following programs, please let me know via e-mail (sammapp@pobox.upenn.edu) or call (215) 898-2020. Thank you for all you do and don't forget to VOTE!

Volunteers Needed for Shadowing Day Thursday, November 18

On Thursday, November 18, Philadelphia area businesses and organizations will welcome ninth grade students from the Philadelphia School District into their workplaces to give them firsthand exposure to the everyday working world. Shadowing is an experience during which students are paired with employee mentors for a day (9 a.m.–2 p.m.) to learn about particular careers. Join other members of the Penn community as they host 9th graders from the Philadelphia School District. Don't miss this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our local high school students.

Have a special talent you want to share?

Can you teach Ballet, Arts & Craft, Karate or any other activity? Volunteer to teach at the Sayre Beacon Program held at Sayre High School located at 58th and Walnut Streets in West Philadelphia. Classes meet evenings and Saturdays.

Penn Ride for Cancer Supports American Cancer Society

Jon Schlegel  is  working to organize a campus-wide event in which 20 Penn students will bike across the country to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.They are hoping to raise at least $100,000 for cancer research before they embark on their ride. In order to make this effort successful, they need to enlist resources from the entire Penn community. As such, they would like to reach out to students from Penn to see whether they would be interested in participating in this event. For further information, visit the website, www.pennride.org.

The Philadelphia Writing Project is still looking for students to volunteer in the Bryant Elementary School Writing Center at 6001 Cedar Ave. We need interested persons to work with students in grades 5 and 6 any day between Monday and Thursday for a minimum of 2 hours a day.
