Chester County Tours

The Bus tour to many related Chester County services was an extremely effective way to get a real-world sense of human service delivery challenges.

Learn the cultural, economic and political environment of Chester County with the annual Chester County 101 Tour.

A brief historical overview is provided, including key issues for communities, recent changes to the business landscape, and local efforts to improve conditions and quality of life for all residents.

The group then embarks on a day-long, guided bus tour of several Chester County agencies as an orientation to the local nonprofit social service sector.  Participants discover the wide range of services provided by these agencies from healthcare to employment and family services, and the challenges those organizations face while meeting the needs of diverse county residents in the current economic and political climate.
