Each year the Davies Program partners with local Meadville Area non-profit agencies to place Davies Leaders at the agencies that best suits their desires for service. These are some of the agencies Davies Leaders have worked at.
Meadville Area Chamber of Commerce
211 Chestnut Street Meadville, PA 16335
The Chamber of Commerce works on projects that address the economic, social, educational, and political well-being of the Meadville community.
One of the original community agencies partnering with the Davies Community Service Leaders program, the Chamber has hosted a Davies Leader since 2003. Work by a Davies Leader has helped the Chamber initiate steps to develop a more efficient and expedient tool to communicate with members about pressing legislative issues. Another Davies Leader organized informational seminars for Chamber members.
Redevelopment Authority of the City of Meadville
948 Water Street Meadville, PA 16335
The Redevelopment Authority plays a vital role in the Meadville community by focusing on downtown, neighborhood, and community revitalization.
The Redevelopment Authority joined the Davies Community Service Leaders program in the Summer 2007 with the launch of the “Main Street” project.
Andrew Walker (Previous Executive Director) stated: “In my opinion, many local agencies, including the Redevelopment Authority, do not suffer from the lack of creativity or ingenuity, but the lack of capacity to implement new initiatives. The Davies Community Service Leaders Program provided the Redevelopment Authority with the capacity to focus full-time on the research needed to get an active downtown revitalization program off of the ground. The dedicated effort of our Davies Service Leader shaved many months off of the time needed to prepare a competitive grant application for state funding from the Main Street Program.”
Meadville Council on the Arts
Market Square, 2nd Floor 910 Market Street Meadville, PA 16335
The Meadville Council on the Arts is a small, multipurpose non-profit agency that reaches out to children and adults interested in the world of art.
