This organization helps mitigate food waste on Allegheny’s campus by collecting uneaten food from dining services and delivering it to multiple shelters in the area including Women’s Services and Saint James Haven.
Youth Service Corps
The YSC coordinates community service events for local youth to get involved in community service alongside Allegheny students. It also provides information on service scholarships and ways to see community service as work experience.
Youth Sports Mentoring Program
The YSMP brings Allegheny athletes together with Meadville youth who play sports. Allegheny athletes would assist their mentee in improving their skills in their preferred sport, partake in large mentee events with them, and be there to support them. The goal is for Allegheny athletes and Meadville youth to have a place to gather, enjoy athletics, and build a long lasting friendship.
The E=MC2 Program is a STEM enrichment program for local youth. Allegheny students involved in this program help youth explore their interests in STEM fields, provide examples of careers, create lessons, and recruit students and volunteers.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is a student organization that works closely with the affiliate in Meadville to provide decent housing for those in need. Allegheny volunteers build access ramps, paint homes, and do other repair projects most Saturdays. No construction experience is required.
French Creek Food Hub Mobile Market
The mobile food market is a vehicle that delivers fresh, local food to various neighborhoods in Meadville and in the greater Crawford County area. It was created to increase healthy food access among low-income populations in the community and also to provide local farmers with another market for their products. In this regard, the mobile market seeks to address needs of both the consumers and the producers. The market debuted in the summer of 2017 and was extremely successful receiving a generally positive response from both farmers and community members alike. Because of this, we hope to continue the market every summer.
