Advocacy and Community Engagement

Project HOME offers rising 9th to 12th-grade students a virtual summer service opportunity focused on learning about issues of poverty and homelessness, building relationships with others involved in social change, getting to know persons who have experienced poverty and homelessness, and engaging in service with Project HOME and other agencies fighting poverty, hunger, and homelessness in Philadelphia.

The Summer Program is an excellent way to explore issues facing Philadelphia and discover what you can do, while gaining valuable community service experience.

Students must be available for the whole session for which they apply. As part of their participation, students will be asked to commit to hosting a homelessness awareness session in their school community and/or hosting a collection drive in their school community.

While in-person volunteering is on hold at this time, through the power of technology we will be meeting with residents and hearing their stories, as well as learning from Project HOME staff and others about the work that they do, and even more importantly what students can do—we will hold online bingo, support efforts to mobilize voters, and other events.
