English Major Max Rosen-Long '09 Awarded Haverford House Fellowship
Max Rosen-Long '09 will serve a one-year term and work four days per week with a non-profit organization in the Philadelphia area. Haverford House Fellows dedicate their fifth workday to projects that engage the College with Greater Philadelphians devoted to a more socially just, healthy and vibrant community.
Max describes his placement and project as follows:
Placement: I will be working as an education associate at the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. I will be helping to support and expand the Bicycle Coalition's education and advocacy programs, which work towards increasing use and comfort with bicycles as part of a larger, more environmentally friendly cultural shift.
Haverford House Project: I am interested in getting Haverford students into Philadelphia to explore some of the more interesting locations and history relating to peace, culture, and social justice, in the form of tours/discussions which will get us really thinking about --rather than just looking at-- the city and how it fits in our own lives.
