UConnect at Drexel University
UConnect is a program of the Lindy Center for Civic Engagement and the College of Arts and Sciences providing Information, Referral and Follow-up (IRF) services to the local community. Housed at the Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships, UConnect pairs trained volunteers, called Navigators, with community members in need of support connecting to local programs, services, and other resources and opportunities that can help move their life forward. In addition to providing IRF services, our volunteer Navigators will advocate for our neighbors, learning along the way about the injustices that so many face. This two-pronged approach provides for a welcoming space where everyone gives, receives and learns from each other.
