Welcome to Civic House 

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.
