Submit to the Community Service-Learning at UMD blog

This blog is open to University of Maryland students, faculty, and staff, as well as community partners. I hope that this blog becomes a chorus of voices, with posts by individuals involved in all the aspects and ends of service, about the issues we are passionate about and our experiences working particularly with service-learning. I hope it will serve as an online space of community as well as exposing individuals to the idea of service.

Blog posts should be between 300 and 1,000 words, and ideally would also include visuals such as pictures or youtube videos, links to volunteer sites, etc. Posts should be e-mailed to jbrager [at], and can be sent anytime.

Questions to think about:

Are you passionate about social change? Do you have a cause that you want to get more people involved in? Have you had a volunteer experience that moved you or changed your mind about something?

If you are a volunteer:
What was your service experience? What was unique and especially moving about it?
What did you learn from this experience? How did your perspective change and what are you doing as a result?
Why did you get involved, and why should others get involved?
How can others get involved with this issue or project?
What would you like to tell others about community service?
Do you ever relate your volunteerism to your coursework for school? If so, how?

If you work with a community agency:
What social issues do you work with?
What are you personally passionate about? How did you get involved and what kind of work do you do?
Why do you like working with University students?
What do you wish they knew?

Thank you!
