  • Community Service Opportunity: Blind Sports Organization of Philadelphia
    • Our organization has done a great job of providing people with visual impairment the opportunity to participate in athletic settings. As a non-profit organization, we are constantly looking for volunteers to assist in our various events held around the Philadelphia area.  Being familiar towards Central’s mission to have students engage in community service, I think this would be a great opportunity to have students assist in events while being able to enjoy the pleasures of sports and social interaction. We have a volunteer sign-up page, which is copied below.

  • Mentorship Opportunity: Tech it Out Philly, a free program introducing high school students to Computer Science fundamentals. Students are paired with individualized mentors from the University of Pennsylvania, who will guide them through coding their own websites dedicated to a social issue of their choice during our weekly 2-hour sessions.  No experience is required – we welcome students with little to no exposure to Computer Science. We are in the process of expanding to a greater number of high schools across Philadelphia and would love to welcome Central students to the program.
