Please remind – or inform – your students that the Illini Union Office of Volunteer Programs (OVP) Ambassador Program applications are due Tuesday, February 12th. This 8-week non-credit course is open to first-year and sophomore students from any college or major. The program focuses on introducing students to the fields of volunteerism, philanthropy and social entrepreneurship from a theoretical perspective with experiential learning opportunities.
Students will volunteer, assist in planning volunteer opportunities for other Illinois students and community residents, provide support to the Campus and Community-Wide Day of Service recently promoted in the Chancellor’s January 22nd email, and complete a project related to the field. Sessions include training on leadership, communications, diversity, career development, innovation, and planning large-scale service events.
Course meets Wednesdays February 20th-April 27th from 5:30-7:30p (excepting March 20 and 27). For more information contact OVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 217-333-7424 and ask for Kati.
