We have found in our short time as Service Co-Coordinators that intentional service is something that is critical to students in effort to learn and grow as people and community members. By intentionally volunteering, students are able to fully understand their impact while serving.
During 2021 SOUL Day of Service, students were able to visit a Louisville service site covering all different areas of need from composting to making medical binders. Students were able to meet and connect to other students, as well as to the campus and the surrounding community. For us as Service Co-Coordinators, it was important that the volunteering opportunities we provided sparked intentional and meaningful conversation.
Along with SOUL Day of Service, we also put on an Alternative Service Break trip to the West End of Louisville over fall break. This trip’s goal was to not only volunteer, but truly learn about the West End of Louisville from people that live and serve within the community. We got to travel and learn about all of the West End’s neighborhoods and several initiatives and goals of these sites and individuals. It was truly rewarding and one of the most intentional service experiences any of us have had.
The Service Coordinators develop active citizens on our campus and in our community through immersive service-based trips and days of service.
