Comegys is a public school located in Southwest Philadelphia. Due to recent expansion Comegys is now a K-8 school. CSSP has been a presence at Comegys since 2008, providing both school day and after school support. Our goal at Comegys is to work with school staff and students to capitalize upon their strengths and help them reach their full potential both as individuals and as a community.
Mentors provide extra support to teachers during the school day program, assisting with classroom management and often leading small group instruction. Our after school program serves 140 students and focuses on homework help and enrichment activities. We currently have partnerships with Penn Men’s Lacrosse team, Penn Music Mentors, Penn Art Club, ACTION, and the Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative. Mentors in the after school program have the opportunity to lead small group instruction, work one-on-one with students, and help facilitate or even lead enrichment activities.
Our scholars at Comegys are spirited, hilarious, and inspire us every day. The dedication and commitment of our mentors is what makes CSSP’s presence at Comegys so strong, and I hope to see more passionate mentors join the Comegys team!
