Volunteer Service for the Fall 2014

Volunteer Service for the Fall 2014

Volunteer Service Requirements

Volunteering and serving the community is important. Our program values humanistic qualities in its students. Each of you are required to volunteer while in this program. There are some group service projects that you are required to participate in and also individual experiences that you can pursue either ongoing or one time opportunities. Please keep a tally of your service projects and hours to turn in.  We have a form that you can complete and turn into Shonna or send via e-mail or fax. Find organizations or health care facilities of interest.  Below are a few to consider.

There are local hospitals, clinics and nursing homes in need of regular volunteers. The Kentucky Humane Society needs volunteers to tend to their abandoned pets.  The Habitat for Humanity is always seeking volunteers to help with building homes.  If you attend a church, synagogue or any religious facility, there is an opportunity to volunteer in various ministries (e.g., usher/greeter, sing in a choir, volunteer in the day care, volunteer with youth groups, teach, etc.) or community outreach.  You may also seek out Jefferson County Public Schools to become a volunteer through the Everyone Reads Program, www.every1reads.jefferson.kyschools.us.  In your community there Boys and Girls Clubs, the YMCA and local community centers needing mentors for the youth, assistance with health initiatives and much more.  The opportunities to serve in our surrounding community is endless.  Get involved!
