The Community Service Initiative: Learning and Growing through Service
The Community Service Initiative provides opportunities for Newbury College students to participate in community service projects. The Initiative is a collaborative effort among the Office of Student Involvement and a variety of other Newbury departments, groups, and individuals.
The Initiative serves as a liaison between Newbury students and the community of local agencies in need of assistance. The Initiative promotes the educational, as well as personal, benefits of service. We believe that when we give of ourselves we also receive much in return. Friendships, personal growth, career building, and improved self-esteem are just a few of the benefits. Together, Newbury students, faculty, staff, and various student groups can achieve these benefits by joining the Community Service Initiative. The more people involved, the more lives we are able to touch.
Activities are advertised around campus and through our weekly newsletter, This Week at Newbury.
