In order to be recognized as a member of the Service Corps, there are three minimum requirements. It is common that many of our members surpass these expectations.
In order to assure that we are a strong force in our local community, we ask each member to volunteer at least 3 hours of his or her time towards a local service initiative. The requirement can be filled through participation in any service project organized by a student group or non-profit/government organization. For guidance on available public service opportunities in the Baltimore area, please email our Community Outreach Chair, Lisa Piccinini at email@example.com or contact Teresa Schmiedeler, Director, Public Interest Initiatives & Fellowships, at tschmiedeler @ law.umaryland.edu
Because we are very ambitious with our trip planning, we ask each member to help us in achieving our lofty fundraising goals. The requirement can be filled through participation in any of our core fundraising activities (the phonathon and the letter writing campaign), or by attending at least 2 of our social fundraising events.
Because our mission involves immersion in public service, we require students to either attend one of our week long service trips or be heavily involved in our organization. Heavy involvement generally means taking on a leadership role within the organization, but can also mean being an especially active volunteer in our fundraising initiatives.
