Service Plunge 2.0 Facilitator Application

Service Plunge 2.0 provides students with a challenging and fun opportunity to lead and learn through active experiences. Through direct and indirect service, “plungees” learn the importance of service, social justice and civic engagement. They also meet community needs, identify and build upon community assets, and share their experiences with the campus community. Open to all students, the retreat will be held April 6-8, 2018. This year, the Plunge will focus on watershed cleanup and hunger and homeless issues.

Facilitator Roles

Facilitators will plan and implement the Service Plunge 2.0 retreat. This includes attending meetings and a training retreat during the final week of winter break. The role of the facilitator is not only to be a leader during the Service Plunge 2.0, but also to be a friend to the participants. Facilitators will be expected to take charge of service events, lead by example and act as a role model to the group. They will be expected to arrive on time for all meetings, respond promptly to emails and be advocates for the Office of Community Service. Students who have a passion for community service, leadership and impacting others are encouraged to apply.
