Civic Engagement & Service Learning

        The FFS Civic Engagement/Service Learning Program promotes service as a natural result of our concern for others.  We seek to partner with community organizations to meet specific needs as defined by each organization. These partnerships help us to build strong relationships in the community and with the clients served by these organizations, primarily through face-to-face contact.  We also manage can drives, turkey basket drives, and holiday gift drives if they support both our partners’ and the school’s community areas of focus.  These are:

  • Barriers to health and wellness
  • Barriers to economic equality
  • Barriers to an anti-racist Frankford neighborhood and City of Philadelphia.
