Empower students to develop professionally through service.
The Changebuilders program is intended to fulfill several goals:
- Engage students on campus and in the local community
- Create a sense of community and purpose for students
- Teach professional skills through volunteer experiences and workshops
- Increase student understanding of their community and its needs through experiences
- Build a professional network through relationships with community partners
Members will complete 40 hours in one academic year by participating in monthly cohort activities with their peers, including National Day of Service (9/11), Make a Difference Day, MLK Day of Service, and Midnight Run. They also have the option to engage in personal projects of their own design focused on developing professional skills. Each Changebuilder is encouraged to complete at least one personal project under the mentorship of the Community Engagement Coordinator. The Community Engagement Coordinator can also connect them with an organization in their chosen field where they can increase their network and experience through service.
Changebuilders Board of Directors
All members can participate in the Changebuilders Board of Directors, which is a group of student leaders who take charge of planning monthly cohort activities, fundraisers, and social events.
