The Marilou Allen Office of Service & Community Collaboration’s Alternative Break experiences have become hallmark programs, offering students a chance to get to know and provide services for our Ardmore partner organizations while gaining a deeper sense of community and belonging. This spring, David, Daniel, Joseph, and Quinn participated in Alternative Spring Break (ASB), spending their time off giving back and learning about their neighborhood beyond Haverford’s campus.
The Marilou Allen Office ofService and Community Collaboration
The Marilou Allen Office of Service & Community Collaboration (OSCC or Office of Service for short), supports service and community engagement for the entire Haverford community. We help build local relationships and partnerships, and position Haverford's campus as a welcoming gathering place for Ardmore community members.
Our goal is to make volunteer opportunities accessible and valuable to all. Student clubs who focus on service and advocacy can contact us to help plan and promote events, students who need clearances to work at an after school tutoring program with children can come to us for assistance, anything we can do to help you get involved in service work here at Haverford and beyond... just reach out and let us know!
