Community Outreach

 

Service Spotlight!

Congratulations to Christine Angiuoli on being selected for our latest Service Spotlight!

Weekly Programs

New participants are always welcome!

The Office of Community Outreach has a variety of Weekly Service Programs scheduled for 2015-2016.  They are a pretty easy way to get involved serving the community because OCO's Program Coordinator's have relationships with staff at the organizations we serve and will show volunteers the ropes when they are first getting started.  They also provide transportation to our off-campus programs.  

 

Non-Commitment Programs

These programs allow volunteers to start serving at any point in the semester and do not require a weekly commitment so you can come when you can!

Service Spotlight
Christine Angiuoli (pictured above on the right) is a junior, healthcare management major who participates in Big Brothers Big Sisters each week. According to her nominators, she has gone above and beyond to find meaningful ways to connect with her "Little."

When asked why she chooses to volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters each week, Christine said, "I have been fortunate enough to have many role-models growing up who cared about and guided me during a time when I needed it most.  Being a Youth Mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters has given me the opportunity to offer guidance and friendship to my Little Sister, who has grown very near and dear to my heart. This organization has given me the opportunity to not only volunteer with our youth but the privilege to form friendships with a fun, uniquely talented and passionate group of youth and fellow mentors."

Congrats, Christine!  Thank you for your dedication.
