Community partnership work at Southwark School

Bethanna is proud to be one of 25 community partners working together to support students at Southwark School in South Philadelphia. Our role was recently highlighted by the City of Philadelphia Mayor’s Office as an example of programs found in thriving community schools. With the help of the school’s partnerships coordinator and bilingual counseling assistants, Bethanna staff offer workshops for families in 7 languages.

Bethanna is empowering parents at Southwark to build strong families and a strong school community.
