How to Volunteer
Editors Note: Purposeful Service Opportunities was a successful joint 3 year project of the Service Learning Institute and AmeriCorps from Fall 2010 to Spring 2013. Unfortunately, AmeriCorps denied Student Activities the AmeriCorps members it requested to run the program in 2013. Without institutional support the program is in limbo. But this does not have to be the case. It is totally in the power of student leaders to take ownership of the program for the benefit of the campus community if they choose to do so. The best positioned student leaders for taking on this shared task are:
- Associated Students Service Senator Michelle Calleros
- The Multicultural Greek Council
- The Rotoract Club
Please contact the representatives of these student orgs if you would like to see PSO continue and encourage them to do what administration does not have the capacity to do this year. I have resources, training and advice if there are student leaders willing to take this on. I (Steven Goings) can be reached at 831 277 1523 or at email@example.com.
