Chester Community Fellowship

The Chester Community Fellowship (CCF)—a signature Lang Center program funded through the Swarthmore Foundation— enhances the capacity of Chester-based community organizations while providing opportunities for student learning. Students hold internships four days a week; on the fifth day, Fellows work together on a project-in-common relevant to the City of Chester. The summer experience focuses on developing each Chester Fellow as a scholar, civic leader, and public servant.

The 2021 Fellows and their Chester internship host sites are:

  • Mariam Muhammad ‘24, Chester Children's Chorus

  • Lauren Park ‘24, Chester Children's Chorus

  • Susan Mcharris ‘24, Chester Eastside

  • Shaadiin King ‘23, Chester Education Foundation 

  • Katie Carlson ‘23, Chester Education Foundation 

  • Ell Rose ‘24, Chester Education Foundation 

  • Michael Maturana ‘24, Chester Education Foundation 

  • Zack Monterosso ‘24, Chester Housing Authority
