The Pepperdine Volunteer Center recognizes that serving one time a semester has its value, but if we want to effect change in our communities, we should be committed to meaningful and repetitive action in our local communities. Through this commitment, we are able to articulate and recognize issues of equity, understand the value and diversity of communities and cultures as a priority in decisions and actions, and explore and connect to God's call for justice in the world.
This is why the PVC is beginning the 25 Challenge program.
In honor of theVolunteer Center's 25th anniversary, we are asking students to commit to 25 hours of service in one semester. Those who achieve this goal will lead the way toward service among their Pepperdine colleagues.
In order to achieve the most out of service to our community, we recommend the following guidelines as you reach toward the 25-hour requirement:
We want to know how you serve your community during the 25-hour commitment. When you reach 25 hours, please email us the dates of your service, what organization you partnered with, what you did, and how many hours you worked alongside the organization.
Here's an example:
|DATE||ORGANIZATION||WHAT DID YOU DO?||HOURS|
|9/7/2013||UCPLA||Spent time with folks with cerebral palsy.||3|
|9/12/2013||Boy Scouts of America||Mentored 277th pack at meeting in Thousand Oaks.||2|
|9/30/2013||School on Wheels||Tutored kids on Skid Row.||3|
When it adds up to 25 hours, email us.
Make this step toward a life of purpose, service, and leadership.
