  • Deadline for SOS Leader Application

    Jun 6th, 2016
    5:00pm - 5:10pm
    Online

    The deadline to apply to be a 2016 September of Service leader is Monday, June 6 at 5pm

    Note that students will earn work-study funding ($7.25 per hour) for helping lead this important initiative.

    Get those applications in! Leaders will be selected and contacted by June 17, and meetings will start around the second week of July.

    Dear students,

    1.   Are you awesome?

    2.   Do you want to lead the largest service initiative in the history of CBU?

    3.   Do you want to make a difference on our campus and in the Memphis community?

    4.   Do you want to develop your leadership, organizational, public relations, event planning, and maybe even geeky technical skills?

    5.   Do you love hard work and long summer meetings?

    6.   Could you use $7.25/hr in work-study funding for all of the above?

    If you answered yes to all six of these questions, you are a perfect candidate to lead September of Service: 30 Days of Good Deeds 2016! 

    We are looking for approximately ten student leaders. If you are interested, please read carefully the below information and apply (via responding to this email) by 5pm Monday, June 6.  In advance of that, if you could zip me a quick email simply letting me know you are interested, I would really appreciate it.

    Below are the responsibilities of September of Service (SOS) leaders:

    1) Attend meetings this summer, starting about the second week of July, approximately every two weeks. You must be able to attend these meetings in person (not by Skype, etc). If you have to miss one meeting we can live with it, missing more than one causes problems. These will typically be evening meetings, depending on the schedules of the team members.

    2) Contact agencies. We will work with many previous years’ organizations but we will also consider others. This summer you will be responsible for contacting approximately three of our chosen agencies and identifying potential work dates and tasks.

    3) Post information about the service event on the SOS Web page and Facebook page.

    4) In September you will be responsible for leading service days at your organizations (or others if you are in class during yours, etc.). This means:

    ·         Coordinating everything with the host agency well in advance and on the day of service.

    ·         Anticipating and planning for transportation (usually people carpool).

    ·         Facilitating introduction of participants, collecting release forms, handing out name tags, etc.

    ·         Helping organize the work once on site, and then working alongside the other volunteers.

    ·         Facilitating a wrap-up discussion, including participant testimonials.

    ·         Getting everyone back to CBU.

    5) You will also be responsible for being the Public Relations (PR) person on three or more days (not the days you are leading). This gives each leader at least six days (sometimes more) of going to the service sites (the days you lead plus the days you PR). This means:

    ·         Obtaining the PR equipment from the prior day’s PR person.

    ·         Getting people to participate in the PR through "Why I serve" signs.

    ·         Taking pictures and videos on site.

    ·         Uploading pictures to Facebook that afternoon/evening (with clever captions =) and tagging participants.

    6) Planning and running the kickoff and finale events.

    If you are interested in being a September of Service (SOS) 2016 leader, please respond to this email by 5pm Monday, June 6 with the following information:

    1) What is your name, phone number, and email?

    2) Why do you want to be an SOS leader?

    3) What makes you a good fit for the SOS leadership team?

    4) Who are two CBU faculty or staff members who can verify you are awesome, a hard worker, AND reliable (do NOT ask for a letter – we will contact them)? Reliability is super important for SOS leaders because the rest of the team and our volunteers are counting on you.

    5) What is your availability for evening meetings during July and August? 

    6) How many times have you participated in SOS and at what sites?

    7) What ideas do you have for improving SOS?

    8) What local non-profits would you like to see us serve this year?

    9) What is your course and work schedule for the summer. Please be as informative as possible.

    10) What is your course schedule for the fall? Give classes, dates, and times.

    11) What is your work schedule for the fall?

    12) Will you be a resident or commuter in the fall?

    13) Do you have a car?

    14) What is your major? What is your GPA?

    15) In how many SOS events have you participated?

    Leaders will be selected and contacted by June 17, and meetings will start around the second week of July.

    Need a visual reminder of what we do during September of Service? Check out these videos from previous years (maybe you will see yourself):

    “We can’t stop”

    “Where do we go from here?”
