Connecting Communities Service Day is April 17

Western Today staff

In 2014, the Teaching-Learning Academy at Western Washington University proposed the creation of a trust-building event in response to the BIG question, “How do we ignite individual passion, purpose, and potential to co-create a culture of trust?” The TLA welcomes students, staff, and faculty to participate in the upcoming events as part of Active Minds Changing Lives Week.

Connecting Communities Launch (Monday, April 13)

Faculty and staff may drop by Wilson Library 270 anytime between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to learn how they can volunteer with various organizations within Whatcom County. Individuals will also have an opportunity to sign up for a service event on Friday, April 17. Light refreshments will be served.

Connecting Communities Day of Service (Friday, April 17)

On April 17, faculty and staff may join their colleagues in a day of service. Service projects are available on- and off-campus, and folks have a variety of volunteer sites to choose from. Projects for April 17 range from creating a short film for the Family Meals Project to assisting Tara Perry’s class with assembling backpacks for the homeless. For the list of service projects, please see the TLA events page. This is also a wonderful opportunity to use Community Service Leave available for Professional staff and classified staff.
