The Volunteer Service Corps sent out an email last week with a wide range of volunteer opportunities for students. The item below caught my eye because it is an opportunity for freshmen. Please pass it on to your students as you see fit.
It is normal for first year students to struggle a little to find their niche on campus. Some freshmen find it right away, through an advantageous pairing of a roommate, or getting involved early in a campus ministry group, intramural or club sports, or some other student organization. There are also students who are still yearning to flex some muscles they haven’t used yet, and that is leadership. Sometimes first year students aren’t sure if they can be leaders on campus, just given their age. Nonsense! There are plenty of ways they can help make a difference.
If this program sounds like something your first year student would like, then be sure to let him or her know.
Are you a freshman? Are you interested in becoming involved in a new leadership development program focused on developing global and service leaders? Then join us for the LEADERSHIP LAUREATES INFORMATION SESSIONS:
Thursday, March 31 at 5:00PM in Johnson Hall Lounge
Tuesday, April 5 at 11:00AM in Bostwick Hall Lounge
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
If you have any questions about the Laureates program or you are interested and cannot make it to one of the information sessions, please email Marianne Magjuka @ email@example.com
