Megan Forman joined the Civic House staff in August 2010, serving as our Graduate Assistant while earning a Masters degree in Higher Education from Penn's Graduate School of Education. She began in her fulltime role at Civic House as Program Coordinator in August 2011.
With her, Megan brings experience in civic engagement and student development from a variety of perspectives. Prior to arriving at Penn, she spent several years supporting the work of the Justice Education department at St. Anthony Foundation in San Francisco where she directed the service-learning and internship programs and designed experiential learning opportunities for high school and college students. She also spent a year in Phoenix, Arizona where she lived in community as a member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and provided direct service at an emergency family homeless shelter. She believes that her own service experiences as an undergraduate at Saint Joseph's University helped to shape her values, interests and ultimately, her career path and would like to provide similar transformative opportunities for students to engage with and learn from the community.
Megan is the advisor to the CHAC Executive board, as well as a variety of CHAC member groups. She also works closely with Civic House's Alternate Spring Break program and assists with Civic House education and leadership programming.
