Looking for Summer Work? Consider Interns for Justice
The Interns for Justice Program invites UP students to engage in summer service with organizations working alongside under served and marginalized populations. The program is offered through the Moreau Center for Service and Leadership, but site placements are determined by the intern. Interns will build deep relationships with the people and communities in which they work, critically examine root causes of poverty and injustice, and are encouraged to use a lens of faith while reflecting on their experience.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis starting March 26th, with priority given to those received before April 7th. For more information, please check out http://wordpress.up.edu/servelearn/interns-for-justice/ or contact Lindie Burgess in the Moreau Center at email@example.com.
Moreau Center to Offer Service Grants For New Service Learning Experience Model- Link UP
Link UP grants will provide support and funding for new collaborative service-learning experiences that offer students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to engage in service and conversation around local, domestic, and international issues in a context of intentional integrated learning. New Link UP service-learning opportunities will offer a greater opportunity for collaboration between students, staff, and faculty with all aspects of the experience, formation, ideas, and organization, coming from faculty/staff and students themselves.
Like all Moreau Center programs, Link UP service-learning opportunities must have a clear focus on social concern, must identify clear learning outcomes, and incorporate the Moreau Center Core Commitments of direct-service, social justice, community, solidarity, reflection, spiritual exploration and sustainability. Accepted Link UP proposals will receive a Link UP grant of up to 50% of the total program cost, with a maximum grant of $5000.00 in addition to receiving organizational support and advisement from the Moreau Center.
