During the second year in the program, student fellows put their leadership skills into action through community service internships. These provide them extensive opportunities to practice their leadership in the community. Student fellows design their own internships, choosing from existing sites or a limitless variety of new possibilities. Through the community service internships, approximately 4,500 hours of community service are provided annually.
Outstanding Community Service Internship
Emma Drever, Campus Election Engagement Project
Emma completed her internship with the Campus Election Engagement Project, a nationwide organization whose mission is to register, educate, and motivate student voters to vote in elections and become empowered and engaged citizens. Emma registered NMU with the Campus Vote Project to receive resources to build a campus coalition and an institutional plan to increase voter engagement. With these resources she planned the majority of the 85 events that were executed on campus that led to hundreds of students registering to vote. Congratulations, Emma!
