School Partnerships

There is no better demonstration of our commitment to the values of civic engagement, service learning and leadership than our work within schools and school districts.

Our students, faculty, and staff serve as teachers, tutors, and trainers in numerous after-school programs, as well as weekend and summer workshops providing academic support and educational opportunities for families and children.

And in 2006, partnering with community leaders and residents of Chester, Pennsylvania, the Widener Partnership Charter School (WPCS) was established. Undergraduate and graduate students in our education, social work, clinical psychology, physical therapy, and nursing academic programs serve as student-teachers, teacher aides, and counselors. WPCS students have access to Widener facilities such as the Wolfgram Library, Art Gallery, and observatory.

 

Our after- school involvement include but are not limited to:

  • Widener Reads and Widener Counts
  • Boys and Girls Club of Chester
  • Chester Eastside
  • Chester Education Foundation
  • Chester High School
  • First Robotics (STEM Academy)
  • Northern Star Sports
  • Soccer for Success/Chester Upland Youth Soccer
  • Stetser Elementary School
