Comcast Cares Day 2018 - Tilden High School
On Saturday, April 21, 2018, members of the Fuller Park community, Comcast employees, and people from all over Chicago came together to perform a day of service to transform and uplift Tilden Career Community Academy High School in the Fuller Park neighborhood through physical service. In 2012, Tilden entered turnaround in order to provide a stronger school environment for their students. No longer in turnaround, Tilden is now a Convergence Academy. In partnership with Columbia College, Tilden has integrated digital media into teaching and learning, in order to give students a chance to Create, Consume, and Connect.
Volunteers participated in service projects that engender school pride, inspire student success outside of the classroom and after graduation, and made Tilden a more positive social environment for students.
