TerpCorp is Looking for New Coordinators!

TerpCorp is made up of a group of students that aim to engage the University of Maryland in meaningful community service-learning opportunities throughout the local community through resources, programs, and events. Our goal is to educate others on social issues going on right in our own backyard and what efforts we can make to promote social change. We work with many community organizations that do service ranging from environmental to social issues such as Hunger & Homelessness and Poverty. Change starts with one person and any effort made by one individual can make the biggest difference in improving the life of others. Learning from others enables us to empathize with their situation and gage a better perspective of how we can be of help.

As a TerpCorp Coordinator, you will have the chance to be a part of a cohesive group that works to design a education curriculum that help participants engage in meaningful service-learning, plan out and coordinate service events, as well as marketing the word out to the UMD campus to get involved. As a coordinator, you will take on responsibilities that ultimately allow you to be a voice on this campus and give you the opportunity to leave a lasting mark on campus. Though we have responsibilities, the teamwork of TerpCorp allows tasks to be completed more efficiently and effectively allowing there to be equal amount of time working on other priorities such as social engagements and academics. The experiences and skills you gain from this organization are just some of the great resume builders that you get from this position.

We are looking for students who are or aim to be service-oriented and wish to expand their reach in the community as well as build up their leadership role at the University of Maryland. Leave a lasting legacy here at Maryland! Applying is easy and only takes a matter of minutes. The link to the application, which can be emailed back to us or downloaded and printed, is here: http://thestamp.umd.edu/student_involvement/lcsl/involvement/terpcorps/how_to_apply . Completed applications can be returned to terpservice@umd.edu. Applications are due April 27th!!
