The First-Year Experience Civic Engagement Project

Meet other Scribner Seminars while serving the greater community. Please join us as we give a helping hand to the Regional Food Bank Farm and the Double H Ranch, a summer camp for severely ill children.Work will range from harvesting food (at the farm) to leaf-raking and general maintenance (at the Ranch). Students will also receive a tour and learn about the organization's mission.

Participation is open to all First-Year students and their Peer Mentors. Box lunches will be provided.

Civic Engagement Project 2013

Hear what last year's participants thought of the FYE-Civic Engagement Project

 ***A prize will be awarded to the seminar(s) with the highest proportional participation!!***

It is not necessary for all seminar students to attend the same workday in order for the seminar to win; we will count overall participation of the class (including of course, the peer mentor) over the course of the three possible workdays.
