GEN ST 344: Introduction to Service and Community (2 credits, Wednesdays 4:30-6:00pm in 288 Mary Gates Hall)
There are many ways to get involved in the community, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. This course will take a hands-on approach to helping students define what service means to them, provide a starting point for community involvement by arranging volunteer positions with a selection of local non-profit organizations, and offer support for thinking critically about the issues facing society today and how to make these issues personally meaningful.
This course will include a service-learning component of 3-5 hours per week at a local non-profit organization. Those interested in the course will be sent an Add Code after filling out the online survey at https://catalysttools.washington.edu/webq/survey/engage/102671
