Welcome to Civic House
Civic House is Penn's hub for civic engagement, centering community organizations and social justice education, promoting mutually beneficial collaborations between Penn and Philadelphia community nonprofit organizations. Through social justice education, trainings and workshops, Civic House prepares students for responsible community engagement and empowers them to become advocates for social change.
IGNITE Retreat 2019
On September 13th and 14th, staff and student leaders of Civic House participated in an overnight retreat in Reinholds, PA where they evoked community-building activities, discussions, and reflections that sharpened Civic House's views on collaboration among its programs, the community of student participants it supports, and various campus constituents.
