Leadership Southwestern students are currently looking for individuals who need or want help cleaning the inside or outside of their homes or business. The students are raising money for their service trip to Virginia Beach in May and will work for donations. Leadership Southwestern is offering this assistance until March 30 and members are looking to help with any odd jobs that are needed including raking, gardening, or cleaning.
While in Virginia Beach, the Leadership team will be working with the Equi-Kids Therapeutic Riding Program to build running trails for their annual 5K run. They will also be working with First Landing State Park to build benches for their cabins on the beach.
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.
“The leadership students love the spring cleaning jobs,” says team member Sara Peck. “Not only are the jobs a good break from our school work, but it is a great way to meet some amazing people in the Winfield community and bond with our teammates in the process.”
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.
