Preparing for Partnership is a half day session held prior to the start of each semester (January and August). The assists invited local partnering agencies with connecting experiences. Preparing for Partnerships helps provide direction for some of the upcoming Kernodle Center activities. The session offers discussion opportunities, training sessions and sharing of additional Elon University resources.

Working with Students is a three-hour prerequisite to Preparing for Partnership designed for new partnering agencies. Community agencies discuss methods for working with the Kernodle Center for Service Learning, students and faculty to engage students.

Community Partner Initiative Grants are announced bi-annually to the entire community and offer an opportunity for supporting Academic Service Learning experiences for students.

LINCS – Leaders in Collaborative Service students are in five local partnering agencies. The role of these students is assist with the coordination of Elon student volunteers that serve in the agency. These students serve as a link to the campus and provide a direct connection to the resources at Elon.

Special Requests – Community agencies can request volunteer support for one-time and ongoing events. A written form is required 2-3 weeks prior to the activity. We will post your request online and include it in our Special Request binder, which students use to find volunteer opportunities. For more information about Special Requests, please click here.
