  • Meet community needs through your internship, clinical, or student teaching hours, and track your hours on monthly timesheets.
  • Recruit a minimum of 2 volunteers over the course of the school year to do a service project with you.  You can either pick a service project of your choice, or you can participate in a project hosted by the Office for Community Involvement.  Volunteers cannot be other Campus Corps members.  Roommates, family members, and friends make great volunteers!
