APRIL NEWS UPDATE!!!
Get excited! Neighbors Project is getting
a new and improved “face-lift” for 2013-2014!
Due to the successes of the 2012-2013 pilot program, Neighbors Project will have a new program design for the 2013-2014 academic year. The revamped program will be a structured, year-long service leadership program, in which students will be assigned to a community partner and participate in direct or indirect service for the duration of the year. Each community partner will have one assigned Program Assistant, who will liaise between the community partner and GW, as well as manage the cohort of 8-10 student volunteers who are assigned to the community partner.
One of the main components of the new program will be providing student volunteers with a variety of enrichment activities including: volunteer reflections, leadership experiences, professional development workshops, educational events and fellowship opportunities. These enrichment activities will complement students’ service experiences by helping the students better connect what they are learning in and outside of the classroom, and by reinforcing the importance of applying their skills in ways that enhance the communities in which they live.
