PHENND (The Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development) is a 25-year-old consortium of over 25 colleges and universities in the Greater Philadelphia region. The consortium actively seeks to revitalize local communities and promote civic responsibility through service learning among the region's higher education institutions. PHENND Fellows places passionate and talented college graduates with local Philadelphia nonprofits as AmeriCorps VISTA members. We have a three-fold mission (1) Supporting local nonprofits fighting poverty across a wide range of issues (2) Training and retaining local talent to stay and work in Philadelphia and (3) Developing the next generation of nonprofit leaders.

Member Duties : The goal of the PHENND Fellow’s three-year project will be to develop a highly effective volunteer-mentor program for JEVS Human Services programming that involves building recruitment, training, and support systems; documenting the system; overseeing its initial implementation; and training designated staff to ensure that the system is sustained at the end of three years. The PHENND Fellow will begin initially with Youth and Gateway Department programs in the beginning phases of the project and will broaden to include all of JEVS’ diverse programming over the remainder of their time. All PHENND Fellows will receive extensive professional development as a cohort, in addition to any site specific training. PHENND Fellows participate in monthly diversity/equity training, monthly "Dinner with a Civic Leader,” and additional monthly programming with other VISTA programs. PHENND Fellows are also allowed to take up to two courses at the La Salle Nonprofit Center paid for by the program.
