OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE AT THE CAROLINA CENTER FOR PUBLIC SERVICE

7/20 – APPLY FOR SERVICE-LEARNING INITIATIVE

The Service-Learning Initiative (SLI) is a unique student-led orientation to service-learning that provides incoming first-year and transfer students an immersive introduction to the array of service opportunities in and around Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Each year, over three days in the week before classes start, participants learn about and work with APPLES community partners, become more aware of local social justice issues, form lasting friendships with other engaged students and are introduced to reflection as a tool for making meaning out of service experiences. SLI 2016 will take place Aug. 17-19. Applications for SLI 2016 are open and will close Wednesday, July 20. Apply online through the CCPS Application and Nomination Portal. Contact Ryan Nilsen with questions.
