A Note from The Director
Hello Everyone & Roll Tide!
We are excited that you are interested in being part of the Center for Sustainable Service & Volunteerism as we embark to make a difference in the Tuscaloosa & University of Alabama communities by engaging in service.
There are many wonderful aspects surrounding service. First and foremost, anyone can serve. Regardless of your background, skills, educational level, or abilities, you are NEEDED to do service in this community. Second, when you do engage in service, you will experience educationand culture in a new light as you are introduced to people from all different walks of life. You will learn more about yourself and others. You will be pushed to think of the role that service should play in each of our lives as we become more engaged community members. You might even determine what you want to do with your life or solidify what you are already passionate about. Third, service really does matter and make a difference. Meaningful service is transformational not only for communities but also for individual lives.
The Center for Sustainable Service & Volunteerism is here to give you the opportunities to engage in meaningful service and to see measurable change. We have short term service opportunities available throughout the year to introduce you to service. We hope that this exposure to service will provoke you to become involved in sustained service while you are a student here at the Capstone.
Look over our website, give us a call, send us an email, find us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or drop in to see us. We are here to help you find ways to engage and make a difference in your community and world. Help us as we set out to make the world a better place for tomorrow!
