To Volunteer this Fall: 'Into the Streets'

Sponsored by the Program for Student-Community Involvement (PSCI), Into the Streets is a unique program that allows first-year students to familiarize themselves with their surrounding communities through a day of community service. This program creates an environment that allows students to build a sense of community both with their new hallmates and with Philadelphia's neighborhoods and their residents.

On Saturday, September 7, we need volunteers to aid in distributing supplies, collecting materials, troubleshooting, and staffing the wrap-up event. We are also looking for faculty and staff to participate side by side with the students by working at a service site themselves.

As Into the Streets sets out to show first-year students the importance of service and community within the University and throughout Philadelphia, we are eager for the support of all members of the Penn community. The interaction between students and the faculty and staff of the University will serve to further our aim in community building.

We hope you will make this day the most successful Into the Streets ever. If you are interested in volunteering or in working at a service site, please call the PSCI office at 898-4831 or e-mail us at its@dolphin.
