Resources and Support

Preparing for Partnership

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.

Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work Study Service Learning Program (FWSSLP) allows community agencies to hire Elon students for part-time employment at a significantly reduced hourly rate. Once agencies are approved as a FWSSLP site, they are able to hire students each academic year. Contact Nancy Carpenter for an application or additional information.

LINCS (Leaders in Collaborative Service)

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. Learn more about the LINCS program.

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. 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.
