Virtual Service as Accompaniment

In 2020, as the world shifted to online and virtual, the Center for Social Concerns was not immune. In lieu of the traditional Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP), an 8-week immersion where students partner with community organizations across the country, the Virtual Summer Service Corp was born. Students Aysha Gibson and Jonathan Hauke participated in the virtual program and shared their surprise at how intensive, immersive, and meaningful the virtual program turned out to be. They gained new and tangible skills, found mentors within the community partner organizations, were still able to build meaningful relationships with the clients they served, and were shaped in terms of their career discernment
