The Center for Community Service Initiatives is now accepting applications for the 2017–2018 Barry Service Corps Fellows cohort.
The application deadline is May 5.
The BSC Fellows Program is a civic learning and leadership initiative of the CCSI. Designed to develop civic-mindedness in undergraduates, the program has four major components:
- Training and development sessions
- Collaboration with community partners
- Support of CCSI programs and events
- Design, implementation, and assessment of focused projects
Graduates of the BSC Fellows Program have gone on to become community organizers, professionals in nonprofit organizations, Peace Corps volunteers, political campaigns organizers, and social entrepreneurs.
Candidates for the program must be in good academic standing with the University, graduate no earlier than May 2018, participate in a weeklong orientation (August 14–19), and attend meetings on Friday afternoons throughout the academic year.
The time commitment for this program is approximately 7 hours a week.
Interested students may pick up an application form in the CCSI offices – Adrian 208 – or contact Courtney Berrien, CCSI associate director, at email@example.com or 305-899-4017.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact the CCSI associate director with their recommendations of potential BSC Fellows.
