ABOUT FIRST-YEAR COMMUNITY LINK PROGRAM
The Center for Community Engagement invites all incoming first-year students to the Community Link Program. Enhance your Connections experience by spending two days working alongside community organizations on the frontlines of social justice work in Logan. The Program is on-hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we will begin accepting applications spring semester 2021.
Who can Join?
The First-year Community Link Program is for incoming first-year students only.
How to register?
First-Year students must apply to participate in this program; only 36 will be selected to participate. Applicants must fill out the online application form in order to be considered for the program. On the application, students will rank three topic areas that will determine the team they're part of for the session. Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Selected applicants will be informed via email.
What will you do?
You will spend two days in Logan, getting to know the soul of the community through hands-on projects with community partner organizations. Experienced staff from the Center for Community Engagement and our community partners will lead you through engagement activities. Projects will address real needs in your new community of Cache Valley. This program is ideal for students coming from out of state, as well as students who’ve spent their whole lives in the valley. Start (or continue) your journey of becoming an effective changemaker who can listen to the real needs of a community. Projects and activities may involve physical labor, walking, hiking, lifting, and being outside in the summer weather. We value the contributions of students of all abilities, so if you have concerns or would like to describe accomodations that would help you participate fully, please include them in the application.
