Help Your Community and Help Yourself!

Since the Service Learning Challenge began in 2005, hundreds of

local students have reached out to the community through meal

delivery and transportation services for the disabled, after-school and

weekend recreation events for community children, and organizing

blood drives for the local hospital. By becoming involved, Service

Learning Challenge volunteers discovered the personal benefits that

come from helping others.

“I didn’t know how rewarding volunteering could be. Joining the

Service Learning Challenge has been a great experience, and I

recommend other students get involved.”
