Leadership Southwestern students are currently looking for individuals who need or want help cleaning the inside or outside of their homes. The students are raising money for their service trip to Seattle in May 2013 and will work for donations. Spring cleaning helps the students in preparing for the work that will be done in Seattle in the coming months.
Leadership Southwestern is offering this assistance until April 6.
The Leadership team is composed of approximately 40 members from all different majors and activities at the college. Members learn about team dynamics, personal strengths and weaknesses, ethics and styles of leadership which are then practiced through service. Leadership students at Southwestern put their skills into practice by planning and implementing service projects in the community. Each year approximately 25 Leadership service projects are underway in the community, involving more than 210 college students, and 2,000 hours of service.
The service trip that is taken each year is an extension of the community service that is undertaken each year. For the Seattle trip, the team will be volunteering with P-Patch Community Gardens, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and the Seattle Chinatown-International District.
“The trip is designed to give students opportunities to serve outside of the Winfield community,” says Leadership Southwestern student Dylan Moore. “Students expand their worldviews by learning from others and discerning what it means to be a leader in today's global society. Students raise funds throughout the year to pay for their trip, and students also plan and run the entire trip. The location of the trip rotates every year among the following destinations: international, Kansas, urban, and outdoors.”
If you would like Leadership Southwestern students to work on your property or would like to donate to the organization, call (620) 229-6393 or email Leaders@sckans.edu.
