Community Service seeking Service Plunge facilitators
The Office of Community Service is seeking student facilitators to plan and implement the fall 2016 Service Plunge, scheduled for Aug. 31 to Sept. 4.
Service Plunge provides new students with a challenging and fun opportunity to lead and learn through active experiences. Through direct and indirect service, “plungees” learn the importance of service, social justice and civic engagement. They also meet community needs, identify and build upon community assets and share their experiences with the campus community.
Facilitators lead the Service Plunge but also serve as a friend to the participants. They are expected to take charge of service events, lead by example and act as a role model to the group.
The commitment includes a training session scheduled for May 9-11. In addition, facilitators are expected to arrive on time for all meetings, respond promptly to emails and be advocates for the Office of Community Service.
Applications are available online and are due by noon Friday, April 8.
