Welcome to the website of Penn's Civilians Educational Organization (Penn's Civilians). Penn's Civilians is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization of purely public interest. With unique programs designed to advance and affirm Pennsylvania's youth, with your help, we will continue to reach out to the young people of our State.
Our mission is to increase the academic and social achievements of low socio-economic students, and to serve as a resource for parents, educators and all who seek to enrich the lives of children.
- Penn's Civilians Educational Organization (Penn's Civilians) was founded by Mr. L. Richard Sayles to commemorate and to continue the leadership, scholarship, and service he received from charitable civilians and historically exemplified by the life of Pennsylvania's founder, Mr. William Penn.
Our pilot program was first introduced at the Steelton-Highspire high school, in Steelton, Pennsylvania. It was a proven success and has pioneered the way to achieve the necessary growth and enhancement of our programs. Through increased support and participation, we aim to broaden our contributions and extend our reach, both fundamentally and geographically.
- Through the Organizational efforts and the efforts of those in conjunction, we commemorate the support of concerned citizens and continue toward a more vital, just, and caring community.
