Community-Based Learning & Volunteerism
Volunteer and service-learning opportunities are available at local social service agencies through which students do everything from feeding those less fortunate, to assisting children and adults in learning to read, to providing services that have positive effects on the environment, to acting as conversation partners for international students. Students may also choose to complete their Experiential Learning Requirement (ELR) by using a non-course based option. Students can connect to one day or on-going service, learning opportunities, and adventures.
There are several opportunities to develop leadership skills as you engage in service to our community. We are always hoping to engage students as Community Service Leaders, Immersion Trip Leaders and leaders in our Alternative Spring Break program. In addition, the Campus Kitchen Project at Kent State University is in need of members to fill positions on its leadership team and many service-based student organizations are searching for dedicated and passionate leaders.
