Service Opportunities

OVERVIEW

As service is an important part of leadership, we have provided three ways to engage in service opportunities as part of the 2020-21 Leadership LIVE program.

A select number of virtual / remote service activities will be made available for students to complete during the 2020-21 Leadership LIVE program year.  These may involve doing things from your own remote location such as engaging in email correspondence, phone calls, making cards, etc.  Specific instructions will be provided for each Virtual / Remote Service Activity.

A virtual / remote service activities and corresponding information can be accessed in our Leadership LIVE Canvas course.

A select number of volunteer opportunities with Jefferson hospital may be available to complete during the 2020-21 Leadership LIVE program year.  Students will need to be accepted as a volunteer by Jefferson Hospital Volunteer Services and complete any required orientation or onboarding.  Instructions on how to apply through Volunteer Services will be provided.

A virtual / remote service activities and corresponding information can be accessed in our Leadership LIVE Canvas course.

Be an active member of one of Jefferson’s recognized service based student organizations during the 2020-21 academic year (time served as an active member must be equivalent to at least one full semester).  Active status will be verified by the student organization’s Executive Board.

The following are a list of eligible recognized student organizations for 2020-21 for which you may receive credit by being an active member.  You can access contact information for each by viewing the Student Organization Directory.

Students may receive leadership credit for being an active member of up to two service based student organizations (1 LC per student organization); however, please note that you will NOT receive additional leadership credits for additional semesters

PLEASE NOTE:  THE TOTAL NUMBER OF LEADERSHIP CREDITS YOU CAN EARN FROM PARTICIPATION IN A SPECIFIC TYPE OF SERVICE OPPORTUNITY AS WELL AS ANY COMBINATION OF SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES IS 2 LC.

  • This means you could participate in one virtual/remote service activity (1 LC) AND one service based student organization (1 LC) for a total of 2 LC; similarly, you could participate in one service based student organization (1 LC) AND a second service based student organization (1 LC) for a total of 2 LC.
  • Participation in additional service opportunities is welcome but additional leadership credits will not be awarded.
  • This means that while you are welcome to participate in a virtual / remote service activity (1 LC), one service based student organization (1LC), AND a second service based student organization (1 LC) you will still only receive a total of 2 LC as that is the max for the service opportunities component.
