Engage Locally, Nationally and Globally: Netter Center 20th Anniversary Partnership Festival

As a continuation of its 20th Anniversary Celebration, on the afternoon of Thursday, May 2, 2013, the Netter Center hosted a Partnership Festival at Sayre High School. This celebration of University-Assisted Community School partnerships engaged West Philadelphia children, youth, and families, as well as Penn students, staff and faculty, and special guests. The Partnership Festival combined existing spring event traditions – particularly Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative's Eat to Live Festival and Community School Student Partnerships' Field Day – with new activities; creating a fun and engaging afternoon for all involved. Activities included relays and sports, healthy food demonstrations, educational games and youth performances such as drumline and dance teams.
