The Marilou Allen Office of Service & Community Collaboration (OSCC) works with both the Dean's Office (on the Diversity Access & Community Engagement team) and the Center for Peace & Global Citizenship to help build local relationships and partnerships, and position Haverford's campus as a welcoming gathering place for Ardmore community members.
Haverford students volunteer in co-curricular projects supported by the OSCC. Student leaders organize on-campus and off-campus service days, week-long service trips, and manage weekly projects as part of a well-rounded liberal arts education. The OSCC also provides guidance in finding the right volunteer opportunity with non-profits in the Philadelphia region.
Serendipity Day Camp
Serendipity Day Camp channels the community-centered spirit of camp founder Marilou Allen. Serendipity offers financial assistance, allowing those in greatest need the opportunity to have their child attend.

Due to COVID-19, travel off campus is currently restricted to emergencies and necessary appointments and/or trips for supplies (i.e. doctor's appointments, grocery store trips, CVS, etc.). We are doing our best to promote virtual opportunities for involvement. Because of these temporary restrictions, we are not able to offer travel reimbursement for service related activities at this time.
