A scholarship fund to enable every interested student to participate in our student programs which have impacted thousands of students, nonprofits, and people throughout the greater Triangle community.
Our student programs are specifically designed to increase civic engagement, teach about the importance of community service, and help high school students across the triangle build leadership, public speaking, and organizational skills. Across our programs, we partner with local nonprofits to show students the amazing impact nonprofits in the Triangle area have on the community.
Your donation will enable students to participate in the following programs, all focused on civic engagement, leadership, and community service.
A local community service experience for high school students that runs for 4 weeks, with each week having a different theme. Through the camp, students receive leadership and team-building training while learning about local community issues. Some of the issues the camp focuses on are the environment, poverty, hunger, and housing issues both in the community as well as nationally. The program gives high schoolers experience in engaging with their community and enacting change with others as the hands-on service includes three full service days at selected nonprofits throughout the Triangle.
These awards motivate goal-oriented students to volunteer by giving them a specific number of hours to work towards, and then recognizing them for achieving that goal. In previous years, we have had over 350 students complete the programs, serving over 70,000 hours to the community.
A nine-month leadership training program that combines service and reflection to allow participants to create a positive impact on their community. SAB teams evaluate community needs, choose a focus area, and spend time organizing service projects for their chosen area. Participants have the opportunity to work with experts in the area, learn about different leadership styles, and develop effective meeting techniques. The program nurtures civic engagement in students who have demonstrated a desire to volunteer and serve the community.
An intensive week-long leadership and community service camp that empowers high school students to impact the surrounding communities through socially conscious thought and action. Students have the opportunity to work with nonprofit agencies to identify needs in the community and work in teams to formulate service projects that address those needs. Through the program, students build knowledge, skills, and confidence as leaders. They have the opportunity to explore current local issues that spark engaged citizenship and enthusiasm for creating a change in the community.
A week-long summer program that allows students to participate in Model UN, a simulation focused on civic engagement, public speaking, and personal growth. Students form teams to solve social and global issues. They develop practical leadership and presentation skills while learning about institutions and systems that shape international relations. Run in partnership by UNC Chapel Hill students, Model UN week focuses on debate, parliamentary procedures, public speaking, independent research, and diplomacy.
