We partner with the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter to create opportunities for learning and fun with youths without secure housing. Active involvement includes weekly community service, active participation in monthly small and large group discussions and activities, and a high motivation to explore one's own commitments. Group meetings establish a space where intentional reflection and community building can occur.
Students will ask not only, "what is my work in the world?" but also, "to what purpose should we pledge our common effort?"
Open to all incoming students of any or no religious tradition. If interested, we encourage you to select the Civic Engagement COOT option, though this is not required.
For more information, contact Kurt Nelson, Dean of Religious & Spiritual Life, firstname.lastname@example.org or Thu Le, program coordinator email@example.com.
Applications are open for first year students, with a first read-through on July 15, 2017, and will be accepted on a rolling basis.
