The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship-sponsored program provides housing and placements at area non-profits for six graduating seniors. The Fellows also work on projects that connect the College to the community.
The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC) has named the 2014-2015 Haverford House Fellows. These six seniors, who were selected for the fellowship for their commitment to social justice and community action, will spend the year after graduation working four days per week with non-profit organizations in the Philadelphia region and sharing a house together in the West Philadelphia neighborhood of Cedar Park. The fellows, who serve as liaisons between the CPGC and social action agencies as well as collaborators with Haverford community members, will dedicate their fifth workday to projects that serve to engage the College with local groups devoted to creating a more socially just, healthy, and vibrant community.
The 2014-2015 Haverford House Fellows and their host organizations are:
Alexandra Wolkoff will work as a Hacia El Futuro Fellow at Puentes de Salud.
Caya Simonson will work as a family law paralegal at Philadelphia Legal Assistance.
Hiba Dhanani will be a case management and outreach fellow at Project H.O.P.E.
