What does it mean to serve?
The St. Norbert College/St. Thomas More Partnership Coordinator will create a program that connects volunteers and resources from St. Norbert College (SNC) to the resources and opportunities at St. Thomas More (STM) school. The AmeriCorps member will join the three person staff of the SNC Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning AND join the 14 full-time staff at STM to create this program.
The Coordinator will work at both sites. During a typical day of service at SNC the member may work on administrative tasks (e.g., planning, grant writing and assessment), helping students (e.g., recruitment, training, and reflection activities) or assisting staff/faculty (e.g., program development, education, and support.) During a typical day of service at St. Thomas More the member may work as a staff member in a project related to the member's skills and interest (e.g., athletics, music, office administration, translating, tutoring, family support, etc.) The amount of time spent at each site will be determined based on the needs of the site at different times of the year.
