March 20-26, 2016 there will be three Linfield trips addressing social need here, near, and far. The trips are thematic and headed to different locations:
Change Corps is a student leadership team that organizes and runs service projects for Linfield College students. This group of highly motivated students has extensive experience in community service and wish to lead their peers in service. Responsibilities include planning Days of Service, coordinating Alternative Spring Breaks, organizing ongoing volunteer opportunities, and serving as a liaison with community partners.
Eligible students are those that will be sophomores, juniors, and seniors in the following academic year. Compensation varies by position and is federal/campus work study. The time committment is one academic year for 8-10 hours a week. Applications for Change Corps are will be available in Mid March on Cat Connect and will close early April.
First CLAS (Community, Leadership, Action & Service) is a week-long service-learning and leadership pre-orientation program for incoming first-year students. We need Linfield students who will be sophomores, juniors or seniors for the 2016-2017 year to help guide new students through this exciting transition. Leaders arrive in mid-August for two days of leadership training and then first-year students arrive eager to serve with local nonprofits, learn about important campus and community resources, gain valuable leadership skills, and discover what McMinnville and Linfield have to offer. Find out more information.
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 email@example.com 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 Taste of Service, Make a Difference Day, Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service, and Global Youth Service Day.
The CES office is always seeking students who are interested in a specific project that will help community service & engagement and wish to gain internship credit and experience. Credit can be given by a specific department or through a general internship class.
