Thomas Jefferson University can support civic engagement efforts through student employment in several ways.
Community Service Coordinators are selected to help support on-campus educational programs and off-campus service events.
In addition, Service Coordinators act as a resource to their peers who are interested in getting involved in community service.
Also, Thomas Jefferson University students who are awarded work-study funds and choose to use their awards to perform community service are hosted by local nonprofit agencies, working off-campus in support of the mission of these community partners. Students can also be selected to be a Peer Mentor for one of our Learning Community classes and receive compensation for their work in that role.
