Freshmen Consider Local Agencies as Volunteers
Community Educational Outreach teamed up with three local non-profits on Friday, August 26th, to participate in a Regis Social Justice Department “Town Meeting”. The event corresponded to Freshman Orientation day at the campus – and the scene was a bee-hive of activity, with student groups touring the campus, joined by upperclassmen guides and staff.
The Social Justice Town Meeting was prepared by Regis faculty member, Jason Taylor Ph.D. The purpose was to introduce local service agencies to the incoming students, who are evaluating each agency for possible placement. This is a learning component requirement for the students within the Social Justice program.
Joining Community Educational Outreach, providing presentations, were the 32nd Street Jublilee Center, Skinner Middle School and Florence Crittenton School. All agencies are dedicated to providing educational services to a wide range of the population-in-need in the Denver metropolitan area.
Students will next participate in facility tours for a close-up look at each program. They will then commit to an agency and begin their service-learning component in mid September.
