Think about the types of interaction you’re comfortable with
Your service directly affects the individual receiving the service—for example, serving as a Big Sister for Big Brothers Big Sisters, or serving as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for area children.
You’ll work on broad, community-identified issues that can increase the capacity of organizations to achieve and address goals; for example, supporting social media or fundraising efforts for a nonprofit agency. This type of project does not typically involve working directly with those receiving the service.
Working with faculty and community mentors, you'll gather, analyze, and present information on areas of interest and need—for example, conducting research on the environmental impact of waste at IU football games.
You’ll help educate others about issues that affect people’s lives to generate awareness and action. For example, advocating for an agency that supports and empowers adults with developmental disabilities, like Stone Belt.
