Philadelphia 1st Service Platoon Expands Operation with the Help of JROTC Students

Jan 14, 2019

After 2 years of working at Edison High School, Philadelphia 1st Platoon is expanding their operation to include additional schools throughout the district.

In order to ensure that the expansion and growth is done in a strategic, human-centered way, our staff (City Impact Manager Stephanie Grimes and Regional Project Specialist Marvin Cadet) traveled to Philadelphia to facilitate a visioning and design session with stakeholders from the Philadelphia School Districts Office of Special Education and leadership and JROTC students from Martin Luther King High School.

The team explored strengths, challenges and opportunities within the district and came up with amazing ideas that will allow Philadelphia 1st Platoon to move forward with new partners and projects in 2019 and beyond!
