Student-Community Connect

West Chester Area School District high school students and West Chester University students, are you looking to help the community and make a little extra money? West Chester Borough residents, do you need help from time to time shoveling snow, mowing the lawn or raking leaves? Let the Mayor’s Office connect you!

Student-Community Connect aims to connect West Chester Area School District high school and West Chester University students with Borough residents in need of these outdoor services.

 The Mayor’s Office has created a database of West Chester students who are able and available to perform the above-mentioned outdoor yard work. Our database provides contact information including name, address, availability, type of outdoor work they are willing to do and their expected rate of pay, if any, to residents who request it. We strongly encourage volunteerism! Residents are able to receive the list by mail or email and will then be responsible for contacting the student and conducting financial and scheduling arrangements.

The application requires a parent or legal guardian’s signature for those under eighteen years of age.

The intent of this program is to assist residents who are unable to do basic physical work themselves or only would require assistance on an as-needed basis.

For more information on the program or to complete an application (WCASD high school & West Chester University students only), print this form, fill out the online version, or call or email Mayor Herrin’s Assistant, Emily Pisano at 610-696-4930 or
