Civic Passage

The Bodwell Center for Service and Volunteerism has introduced Civic Passage, which offers students multiple local service opportunities each week. The Bodwell Center is strengthening and creating new relationships with surrounding community organizations to promote active citizenship among UMaine students. The goal of the program is to increase the civic-mindedness of its participants by incorporating education and reflection into service projects. Civic Passage is built on the foundation of the “Active Citizenship Continuum” of Break Away, a national nonprofit organization.

Community partners, such as the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter, will provide meaningful volunteer projects for students on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis. Students will not only provide assistance to the community in which they live, but they will also increase their knowledge and understanding of the root causes of social issues. Civic Passage will help students gain skills to solve these problems and develop leadership qualities.

For more information, contact Craig DeForest at craig.deforest@umit.maine.edu or 581-1796.
