The Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service is committed to investing in people to increase community engagement. We do this by building relationships, soliciting input, providing information, connecting community residents to resources and supporting the process to strengthen communities across Philadelphia.


In January 2018, the City of Philadelphia will be partnering with communities around the city to launch an after-school literacy program!

We will be asking volunteers to commit to read one-on-one with K-3rd grade students for the academic year! The educational health of our communities is one of the top priorities of the City’s top priorities, so we hope that you will give us a hand in supporting our youth through their most transformative years!
