Summer in Service program benefits both students and local non-profits
Queens' Summer in Service (SIS) program is currently underway. In its second year, SIS is a program in which students intern at different non-profits each week throughout the summer. From the beginning of May through the end of July, 10 students lend a hand at non-profits throughout Charlotte such as Habitat for Humanity, Loaves and Fishes, Second Harvest Food Bank, Supportive Housing Communities, Boys & Girls Club and Autism Charlotte.
The program is a win-win for both students and local non-profits. While students gain valuable experience and make contacts that could help lead to careers later on, non-profits receive much needed volunteer support!
The program is already gaining in popularity. Both students and non-profits must go through an application process in order to be chosen to participate. Learn more about what's happening through SIS this summer by following the students on their blog. For more information on the program, email Christina Hunter, program coordinator for Queens' Center for Active Citizenship.
