Benjamin Allen was a Summer Intern in Cohort 4 on Mike Herrmann’s crew, the Trail Blazers. Since PowerCorpsPHL, Ben has continued with National Service and is currently a College & Career Ambassador with Promise Corps. During his year of service, he acts as mentor and tutor to high school students. Ben was introduced to working as a mentor while he was a Summer Intern with PowerCorpsPHL. Ben believes service work builds character. His time with PowerCorpsPHL prepared him for his new position with Promise Corps where he mentors students on life and career skills. Ben says PowerCorpsPHL brought out the helper in him. As an alumni, Ben plans to remain involved. He hopes to one day sit on the Board for PowerCorpsPHL. He also hopes to work for the City or a Philadelphia based non-profit.
