Work Study Service Team
The Office for Community Involvement aims to engage students in meaningful service that fits wells with the student’s expertise, interests, and future career goals. We work closely with agencies to identify critical community needs and help provide solutions through work study opportunities.
The Service Team stands out among traditional work-study positions by personally and professionally connecting each team member with Non-profit agencies as well as with other members of the Service Team. Service Team members serve in leadership roles with the intention of fostering a deeper sense of civic responsibility while recognizing needs within our community and working to be part of the solution.
Service Team members have a great advantage in working with non-profit agencies in our community to provide needed services for the agency, while personally gaining work experience and professional guidance in their intended field or area of interest. As a college student maintaining good grades, holding a job, and making positive social decisions, team members are in an influential position on campus, and will be looked upon as a leader and role model to peers on campus and the youth in the community.
