Details

2020-2021 CCEL Civic Engagement Scholars, are you looking for ways to connect with other Scholars while also exploring virtual service opportunities? Sign up for a Scholars Service Special! Each session -- led by Returning Scholars who are also CCEL Student Office Assistants -- will orient you to a virtual volunteer project, allow you to work on the project during the session, and give you the chance to connect with other Scholars. To keep each session conversational, spots are limited, so please ensure you can attend before registering. Scholars are welcome to sign up for just one or as many Scholars Service Specials as you’d like, and these programs are just open to 2020-2021 Civic Engagement Scholars. You can count the whole session timeframe listed below towards your Civic Engagement Hours. Contact Adrian Griffin (aag72@case.edu) with questions.
