This is a half-day session held prior to the start of each semester (January and August). The program assists invited local partnering agencies with connecting experiences. Preparing for partnerships helps provide direction for some of the upcoming Kernodle Center for Service Learning and Community Engagement activities. The session offers discussion opportunities, training sessions, and additional Elon University resources. For more information, contact Tammy Cobb.
The Federal Work Study program provides funds for part-time employment to help eligible students pay for the costs of postsecondary education. If you are interested in hosting Federal Work Study students as part-time employees at your organization, please fill out the application. If your application is approved you will become a Federal Work Study site for Elon University students. Download the application here or contact Tammy Cobb with any questions.
Student leaders work with selected local partnering agencies. The role of these students is to assist with the coordination of Elon student volunteers that serve in each agency. These students serve as a link to the campus and provide a direct connection to the resources at Elon.
Community agencies can request volunteer support for one-time and ongoing events. A written form is required 2-3 weeks prior to the activity. The Kernodle Center will post your request online and include it in a “Special Request” binder, which students use to find volunteer opportunities. Learn more about the special request process.
This program offers diverse training throughout the year for participants to complete certificate requirements. Visit Duke's website for more information on this program.
