A Pathway to Service
October 22, 2011
The first critical element of service is community voice. All of the programs we offer through our office are meaningful because we take the time to listen to the needs of our community. This critical element is essential if we are to build bridges, make positive social change, and solve problems in our area.
As always, feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, or
would like to get involved!
Spotlight: Livin' La Vida Lehigh
The Community Service Office is looking for volunteers for its annual middle school program, Livin' La Vida Lehigh. The program will take place on
Saturday, October 29th from 10:00 AM- 4:00PM. We will have a mandatory meeting at 9:30 AM on the day of the program and will need to stay for the
duration of the program. Volunteers will be teamed up with a middle school student as we walk around campus going to the bookstore, dining hall,
library, and other places on campus.
