A career in community service?!?Stephanie Strockis '11 | April 29, 2009
On Thursday, April 23rd, 8D sponsored a speakers panel of Haverford alums that work in the Philadelphia area in community service and social justice. This well attended panel sought to inform students interested in similar careers after graduation what it takes to make it in the fast and furious life of community service.
The panel included:
Michael Froehlich (’97): a Staff Attorney at Community Legal Services
*Susanna Gilbertson (’98): a Training and Education Supervisor at Bilingual
Domestic Violence Program at Lutheran Settlement House
*Tim Ifill (’03): the Executive Director and Co-founder of Philly Fellows
*Jane Weber (’08): a Haverford House fellow at the Lourdes Center for Public
Health to coordinate student public health research in Camden.
Jobs in these fields are becoming just as competitive as other fields, so for those who couldn’t make it here’s a helpful hint: bilingual is the way to be!
