We hosted our sixth group from UGA Impact for dinner at our house in Indianapolis last night. As always, we had a wonderful time getting to know this fantastic group of students. We are blessed to have you come and spend your time and efforts in our city. Thank you!
During the summer, the Center for Leadership and Service partners with four local organizations in Athens to provide internships for eight UGA students. The internship program provides students the opportunity to cultivate skills and gain knowledge about non-profit and community engagement work, while making a positive impact in Athens. Internship host organizations were intentionally selected as model programs that all address the issue of summer learning loss in unique ways. Through this experience, participants have the opportunity to earn a monetary award of $1000 upon successful completion and potentially course credit. Internship host sites include: Action Ministries (3 positions), Athens Land Trust (1 position) Books for Keeps (2 positions), and Camp DIVE (2 positions).
