Classics Major Sarah Derbew '09 Awarded Haverford House Fellowship
Sarah Derbew '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.
Sarah describes her placement and project as follows:
Placement: I will be a fellow at Parkway NW High School for Peace and Social Justice. I will help facilitate and implement new and continuing in class projects and after school programming. I will also help students become more involved in the center and take over leadership roles within the center so that is it truly student run.
Haverford House Project: I want to implement a student-led seminar at Haverford College discussing an East or South African country, involving both Haverford and Parkway students. I hope to have the hard work from this seminar culminate with a trip to whichever country we study in depth.
