- Penn Serves LA: Penn Helps Improve a Charter School
Penn Serves LA at L.A. Leadership Academy
September 28, 2013
Join fellow Penn alums beautify a local charter school that is devoted almost solely to serving children in poverty. L.A. Leadership Academy was started by Ivy-League graduates and 95% of its student body is on free and reduced lunch. Our mission will be to help move classroom supplies into the new school building, paint the walls and interact with some of the college-bound students. This is a great opportunity to work and talk about Penn!
About Penn Serves LA - Started in 2012, Penn Serves offers a way for direct community service for local Penn alumni and their children to serve Los Angeles' most needy populations. We partner with established nonprofits and grassroots organizations for one-time volunteer opportunities. So far, we've served meals to the homeless, delivered food to low income families, planned activities with immigrant children, and so much more. Please contact us if you’d like to help at a future event: email@example.com.
