APPLICATION FOR STUDENT BOARD POSITION
Being a member of the C.S.O. Board offers students a voice in the scope and direction of the administrative side of the C.S.O., helping to shape community service projects and programs. Board members gain life-long leadership and project management skills.

Board Members learn the basics of operating a small, non-profit organization, attend weekly one-hour board meetings, and spend time each week in the office on administrative tasks. Each chairperson is responsible for specific events and community programs.

Our mission is to support student engagement through meaningful community service work and leadership training that enhances the educational experience, meets community-identified needs, provides opportunities for reflection, models the development of effective, collaborative community partnerships with local nonprofit organizations and encourages a lifelong commitment to community engagement.
