Working in the Center for Community Solutions has not only allowed me to diversify the fields I am working in, but also let me gain valuable, hands-on, experience. I've worked for the West Chester Borough and the West Chester Green Team, which let me branch my work off into sustainability—not just computer science, which my undergraduate degree is in. My managers are always flexible and help me grow not only as an employee, but as a person as well. I can always reach out to them in case my schooling becomes too busy and develop a personal course of action that helps me succeed in the workplace.

Another thing I love about working for the Center is that it always feels personally catered to my needs and academic interests. At the beginning of the school year, the manager of the Center sent me a list of several options she thought I might be interested in and helped me schedule meetings to start working on the project of my choice. Since the time commitment is only roughly 7.5 hours a week, I always have time for myself and to work on my education.

The goal of our project was to positively impact the Healthcare community, specifically those who are working day in and day out caring for our community. We at CCEDC feel we have very much accomplished this goal! The Center for Community Solutions completely caught our vision and paired us with the perfect student to achieve what we set out to do. Ani thought through every topic we addressed and put calculated time into every social media post she provided. Her creativity, and positive can-do attitude is exhibited in all her work. We hope to partner with CCS again in the future.

West Chester University’s Center for Community Solutions has been a great partner and provided us with the resources and means to clean up our website and social media presence. Their student expertise has been invaluable to the Borough and we hope to continue working with them in the future!
