In his new role, Badros, who graduated from Kutztown University with a degree in electronic media and dual minors in economics and speech communication, will provide supervision, training, support, and oversight for the ServiceCorps students.  He will manage daily operations, implement the leadership and life skills curriculum, and guide ServiceCorps youth to achieve their personal goals.

“The Coatesville Youth Initiative is pleased to expand its staff to include Mena Badros.  Mena brings a wealth of experience in youth development, and will be a tremendous asset to our community and to mentoring our youth,” said Chaya Scott, director of the Coatesville Youth Initiative.

The Coatesville Youth Initiative’s summer ServiceCorps program is an employment and leadership development program that engages Coatesville Area School District youth from ages 14-18.  It combines an eight-week paid employment at a non-profit or for-profit site, along with a challenging leadership development curriculum and a day of volunteer service.  Youth are placed in teams of two or more at host sites, where they participate in working full-time at meaningful direct-service activities that address a local need and provide a benefit to the community.

Applications for ServiceCorps are now available on the Brandywine Health Foundation’s website at  Applications are due by Friday, April 26, and applicants must meet the following criteria: be between 14 – 18 years old by June 24; be a Coatesville Area School District resident; be eligible to work in the U.S.; and have a valid Social Security number.

The Brandywine Health Foundation’s priorities center around health equity, youth development, and building a safe and economically viable Coatesville community.  For additional information on the Brandywine Health Foundation, visit  For more information on the summer ServiceCorps, contact Mena Badros at 610.380.9080, x110 or
