Project Leaders

Seeking: Students who want to lead their peers on a day of service

Eligible: Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors

Time Committment: 1 hour of training + day of service

How do I sign up? Contact changecorps@linfield.edu to volunteer.

Project Leaders volunteer to help lead their peers in a day of service project. Leaders attend a short training a week before the event. On the day of the event, they sign-in all their volunteers, help transport them to the site (driver certification a plus, but  not required), introduce them to the organization, and serve alongside them. After the service, project leaders lead a short reflection and make sure everyone gets back to campus safely. Project Leaders are needed for Make a Difference Day, Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service, and Global Youth Service Day.
