Service Advocates program seeking applicants
Freshmen, sophomores and juniors 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.
Applications are available online and are due Monday, April 20. Applicants may be selected for an interview between Tuesday, April 21 and Thursday, April 23.
