Your Turn to Serve and Learn: Healthcare access in our community
There are many ways civic learning and democratic engagement (CLDE) may respond to students’ desire to make social change as well as enhance your academic learning objectives. Please join the Lindy Center in preparing a meal for people staying at The Gift of Life House while learning how Drexel's Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships offers a myriad of health supports in partnership with Drexel departments and community organizations.
