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 2023 Fellows and their Chester internship host sites are:

  • Freddie Lin ‘24, CMP Radio

  • Mei Prasetio '25, Chester Education Foundation 

  • Olivia Scarozza '25, Chester Children's Chorus

  • Amelia Brown ‘25, Ruth L. Bennett Community Farm

  • Ryunah Kang '26, Ruth L. Bennett Community Farm
