Register for our April ImPACt Event!


Wednesday, April 28th
6:30-8:30 pm EST
This will be a VIRTUAL event!



Great one-night service opportunity! We will be working with Bedford-Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corps, The Netter Center for Community Partnerships, Recovery on Water, and Theatre of the Oppressed  in mini-consultancies to offer feedback on new and developing organizational initiatives. Volunteers will be contacted a week before the event to choose a breakout group.

More about our nonprofit partners: 




Bedford-Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corps is the nation's first multi-racial volunteer ambulance corps, dedicated to saving lives and changing lives through its emergency medical training program. Volunteers will brainstorm a plan for securing land from NYC to build a permanent home base.




The  Netter Center for Community Partnerships is the University's primary vehicle for advancing civic and community engagement at Penn. With the guidance of a Netter Center representative, volunteers will record a brief video: "A day in the life" of my career, "How I got here", "Helpful skills for my career", "How I overcame adversity during my journey", etc., to share with Philadelphia area high school students. 





Recovery on Water is a rowing team that provides community, support, and exercise for breast cancer patients and survivors in Chicago. Volunteers will help ROW formulate strategies to increase engagement from corporate sponsors and further engage its board.
 




Theatre of the Oppressed partners with NYC communities fighting against oppression to inspire action through theatre. Volunteers will help Theatre of the Oppressed develop fundraising strategies that can engage and expand its network of individual donors and supporters.

Volunteers from all professional backgrounds are welcome. Register below; you will receive a Zoom meeting link several days prior to the event.
 

This month's PennPAC Moment celebrates 10 years of ImPACt events! These events are a chance for Penn alumni to make a big difference in the lives of others in just one night.
