Welcome to Civic House 

Civic House Celebrates 15th Anniversary!



Civic House is the University of Pennsylvania's hub for student-led community service and social advocacy  work. Civic House promotes mutually beneficial collaborations between the Penn and West Philadelphia communities, and beyond.

Through education, community connections, and other resources, Civic House prepares students for responsible and effective civic engagement and leadership. 


Civic House will support Penn students in responsible community engagement and inspire them to serve as lifelong thoughtful citizens and advocates for social change.
