Meet the Team

Meet the 2010-2011 TerpCorps team!

“I am working as a Community Partner Liaison for TerpCorps this year. I’m excited to help build on the partnerships we have with the non-profits in our area. I’m also really looking forward to working with the TerpCorps interns to give students more opportunities in service- learning!”

– Jessica is a double major in Psychology and Economics with a focus in Pre-Law.

“Because First-Year Service Initiative is in the early stages of development, we are exploring different strategies for getting freshmen involved and excited about service-learning.  Along with looking at the opportunities already offered at our university, we are also examining how other universities around the country give freshmen the chance to become involved and educated members of their communities. We are very excited about getting to know this year’s freshmen class and can’t wait to integrate freshmen students into our service-learning programs!”

– Kylee is a sophomore with an interest in finance, and Dee is a junior Communications major and French minor

“This year we hope to re-set the standards for M-PACT by providing the leaders of service organizations across campus the opportunity to better hone both their service and leadership skills.  By providing an environment where these leaders can share their own successes and failures, in addition to hearing from seasoned professionals, we intend everyone to leave with a stronger approach to better serving the community they care so much about!  Planning is currently underway and the date is set for October 23rd!”
