    Who is the Chester County Student Forum?

    Student Forum 2015.16

     
    The Chester County Student Forum is comprised of student leaders from Chester County's public, private, and non-public high schools. Students are selected to become members of the Forum by their school's Student Forum faculty advisor. 
     
    What does the Student Forum do?

    Members of the Forum meet monthly to discuss current issues which are of interest to them and which confront their age group. In addition, members participate in a variety of community service projects. 

     
     
     
      
    Most recently, the Student Forum has volunteered at the Chester County Food Bank, the Barn at Spring Brook Farm, and the Salvation Army. They have also raised funds and donations for the Joy of Sox, Alex's Lemonade Stand and the Chester County Food Bank.
