Doers, Not (Just) Donors
Become a mentor to the Community Engaged Leaders program.
The Service Team is a student-run community engagement program. The program is part of WSUSA; its leadership is comprised of a VP of Service, an assistant director, 4 team leaders and 16 chairs. Each week, the Service Team receive training from a member of the campus or local community. These topics include: Professionalism, Diversity, Time Management, Communication, Reflection, Stress Management, etc. If you are interested in serving as a mentor to this student group, please contact Mike Moon or Teresa Martinez.
Join us for one of our large days of service.
The Center for Community Engaged Learning facilitates four large days of service each year:
- WSU Service Day of Remembrance
- Make-A-Difference Day
- WSU Remembers MLK Week of Service
- WSU Makes A Difference In Ogden
We view these days of service as an opportunity for alumni to volunteer alongside current WSU students to provide mentorship and to demonstrate life-long commitment to community. Alumni event details such as dates, times and locations, will be posted as they are made available.
Travel with our Alternative Break Program students
Alternative Spring Break is a week-long service project in distant communities that gives students an opportunity to participate in community service and hands-on learning experiences during spring break. Students address issues of poverty, hunger, and social injustice. Volunteers may also provide vital humanitarian aid and disaster relief. This could be an opportunity to serve with current WSU students in your area as this group travels. If you have ideas for service sites and needs, please contact Mike Moon.
Another CCEL travel program is the Global Community Engaged Learning Program (GCEL). A number of trip spots are reserved each year for WSU alumni and community members.
