Service Advocates program seeking applicants
Students who are seeking to become active leaders are invited to apply for Service Advocates, a yearlong civic engagement and service program sponsored by the Office of Community Service.
Service Advocates participate in regular training, direct service and reflection activities. They practice valuable leadership in the Aquidneck Island community, endeavor to promote a positive culture of service, and increase volunteerism at local nonprofits.
The program is open to undergraduate students in good academic standing who have a demonstrated financial need. Service Advocates perform approximately 100 hours of direct community service at their primary site, and also receive a stipend of $1,000 per year towards their education.
Proposed community partners for the 2016-2016 academic year include Child & Family’s Sandpipers Early Learning Center, Methodist Community Gardens, Potter League for Animals and the Salvation Army.
