Mission Statement

To make a difference in the lives of those affected by Hurricane Katrina in Mississippi by starting college campus volunteer centers with a special focus on disaster preparedness and Katrina recovery.

Description

  • We promote civic engagement as broad, inclusive, and direct participation in the search for the public good that renews and enriches earlier conceptions of democracy.

  • We value diverse partnerships between K-16 institutions and community-based organizations that focus on civic responsibility and community needs.

  • We are committed to strengthening educational experiences in order to foster improved academic achievement and enthusiastic participation in society.

  • We provide a framework that links service with curriculum and promote information and resources for community service-learning opportunities.

  • We provide support for the implementation and development of after-schooltutoring and mentoring programs for the region's neediest children.

  • We provide assistance, support, and resources for research and evaluation that supports and expands our understanding of social institutions and educational partnerships.
