We are seeking individuals to serve as EIU staff/faculty volunteers during the eighth annual Jumpstart 2 G.I.V.E. activity on Saturday, Aug. 20, 2016 (9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.).

Jumpstart 2 G.I.V.E. is our largest service day of the year. As we welcome all incoming freshman and transfer students, we participate in 20 different critical service projects both on and off campus. Jumpstart 2 G.I.V.E. challenges students to integrate their personal interest and skills to meet the needs of the community. Ultimately this aids in setting expectations that EIU students will be challenged to apply learning and personal experiences to complex situations and become engage and responsible citizens.

Faculty and staff are asked to participate in this experience to strengthen our campus and community culture. This day provides an opportunity for a greater connection between faculty/staff and new students and is an easy way to help show our incoming students what makes our EIU community so strong! We need at least two site leaders for each of our 20 service projects. The role of a site leader is to help welcome the students, oversee the project to successful completion, and help our students enjoy their experience of strengthening our community.

To RSVP to join us or for more about the program, please contact the office today!
