Potential Community Partners for Your Service Learning

Below is a short video by Emily May, the founder of Hollaback!, from TEDx Women (2012). As the handout mentions, Hollaback! is one of our potential community parterns for service learning this semester. A local chapter of Hollaback! is launching at the end of this month, and you could be involved in its start-up.


As you consider which organizations you might be most interested in working with over the weekend, you might consider 1) what issues you’d like to learn more about, and 2) which issues have impacted your own life the most. For example, if issues of domestic violence have impacted your life or someone you know, you might want to work with the YWCA. If you’re interested in issues of homelessness and poverty – or perhaps if you’ve never considered these issues – you might want to sign up for the Lafayette Urban Ministries. Sometimes the most meaningful learning takes place outside of our comfort zone.
