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 by providing student interns who serve four days per 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 2018 Fellows and their Chester internship host sites are:

  • Omene Addeh '21, Foundation for Delaware County
  • Nusaybah Estes '21, Ruth Bennett Community Farm
  • Kaleb Forson '20, Chester Housing Authority
  • Jason Gonzalez '19, Chester Eastside Ministries, Inc.
  • Anjali Singapur '21, ChesPenn Health Services
  • Ainsley Knox '21, Chester Children's Chorus
  • Yi Wei '21, Chester Education Foundation
