Upcoming Community Service Projects
I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”
Albert Schweitzer (1875 - 1965)

Summer Course in Nonprofit Leadership!
Special Topics: Nonprofit Leadership Experience, PLS 492/592, Summer 2013, 110 Leutze Hall
Dr. Jeffrey L. Brudney, Department of Public and International Affairs, Betty and Dan Cameron Family Distinguished Professor of
Innovation in the Nonprofit Sector, (910) 962-3920, email@example.com
In this course students will learn about nonprofit organizations, acquire useful employment skills, and apply them in projects designed by nonprofit organizations in conjunction with the instructor. Students can select the projects that interest them most. Depending upon your interest, you might prepare a board of directors manual, develop a volunteer recruitment plan, build a website for a nonprofit organization, create a marketing plan, manage a fund-raising event or campaign, etc. It is also possible for you to complete a project for a nonprofit organization in which you now work or volunteer, including faith-based organizations. The instructor must approve all projects. The skills and experience you will gain in this course will be useful whether you decide to work for a nonprofit, for-profit, or government organization. The main assignment for the course is the student project and the creation of a poster and oral presentation that describe it. The course begins with intensive instruction regarding nonprofit organizations, their importance, roles, functions, operations, management, and results. For the class Capstone Session on July 26, 2013, students will complete a poster about their projects, and present the projects to the class and to the nonprofit organizations sponsoring the projects. The nonprofit community and UNCW officials are invited to attend the Capstone. The class, thus, offers great opportunities for networking. The class is open to all undergraduate and graduate students at UNCW. For undergraduate students, the course may substitute for the internship requirement for the Public Administration Minor as a “Culminating Professional or Field Experience.”

Teach for America!!!
Sign up to learn more about Teach For America: www.teachforamerica.org/apply
In America today, a gap in academic achievement separates kids in low-income communities from their higher-income peers. Only 8 percent of students growing up in poverty graduate from college by age 24, compared to 80 percent of students in more affluent areas. This limits life options, affects families and communities, and has significant social and economic implications for our country. It doesn’t have to be this way. We know it’s possible to give all kids a great education and the countless opportunities that come with it.
Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates, graduate students, and professionals from all majors & career backgrounds who commit to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders in expanding educational opportunity.
This year, over 10,000 corps member are teaching in 46 regions across the country, impacting over 600,000 students, while over 29,000 Teach For America alumni continue working from inside and outside the field of education for the fundamental changes necessary to ensure educational excellence and equity.
