The Jan & Bud Richter Center for Community Engagement and Service-Learning and the Richter Center Ambassadors are proud to present Fresno State’s first ever Service-Learning Showcase! The showcase will take place April 26th, during National Volunteer Week, from 12:00pm-2:00pm, on the USU Balcony.  The deadline to apply to be a presenter at the Service-Learning Showcase has been extended to the end of day on Thursday, April 20, 2017.
The Service-Learning Showcase celebrates Fresno State students who have completed projects in service-learning classes this year (Fall 2016 or Spring 2017) by providing them with an opportunity to share their service-learning experiences with the public.  This event features a poster exhibit where individuals and teams of students can present a poster on their experience, including the service work they completed, what they learned through the project, and how they impacted the community.  All selected presenters will be provided with a table and two chairs.  All other presentation or exhibit materials must be provided by the participants.
As a result of your participation, you will receive a certificate honoring your dedication and service work. We will award three service-learning presentations with additional certificates and prizes. Fellow students will judge your service-learning presentation on People’s Choice, Best Reflection, and Best Presentation. You can present individually or in a group.
Below is a list of information required in your submission:
  • Name and contact information for lead presenter
  • Name of any additional presenters
  • Service-learning course title
  • Number of service-learning hours completed with the project
  • Poster presentation title
