California Spring 2012 Term Community Service Project


Community service projects like this one near Chico California are required every term at each campus. This particular project was facilitated by Luke Montgomery, Alaina Wakefield, and Student Body President Jason Dwyer, who is quoted in the article. Community service projects are one of our "special sauces."

This is a benchmark example of what our community service projects at each campus are all about--improving behaviors and giving back. In addition, students are more competitive for power company positions if they participate AND communicate it on their resume's, cover letters, and in interviews.

Idaho Summer 2012 Term Community Service

 

 The Idaho ELP’s summer community service project will serve Habitat for Humanity headquarters remodel and repairs. Located in the basement of the All Saints Episcopal Church, established in 1949 the building was in need of many repairs.

On June 16 the students kicked off the first of three weekends dedicated to helping this wonderful organization continue to help others. Students will gather again this Saturday, June 23rd and on June 30th to assist with additional projects at the church. Work will continue in July as students join forces with Habitat for Humanity on a 2.3 acre housing project in Boise, Idaho. This project will utilize a minimum of 40 students on two different days to complete city mandated landscaping 


Texas Summer 2012 Term Community Service Project


Our NLC Texas students’ Commitment to Community project was to lend a hand to Blue Sky Therapeutic. Blue Sky provides therapeutic riding lessons to adults and children with disabilities. Please review our work by visiting Blue Sky’s website: http://www.blueskytexas.org/

In addition the students will organize a fundraiser at Lowe’s to benefit Blue Sky and to help expand their riding ramp.

Other projects include a backpack drive for the Community of Denton. The students also volunteered at the Lewisville Kiwanis Club triathlon
