Lindenwood University residential students may participate in the Community Work Service segment of the Work and Learn program during their junior and senior year. This assignment will replace one semester of Work and Learn on campus. The student will work an average of 10 hours per week for 15 weeks, or a total of 150 hours, in the participating community service organization or school district. The student’s University account will be credited as though they are working on campus. In order to participate, students must complete 55 hours of credit and be of junior or senior standing. (Others may be considered under special circumstances.) Students must be eligible to participate in the regular Work and Learn program and have completed satisfactory work in previous Work and Learn assignments and also be in satisfactory academic standing.
The purpose of the Community Work Service/American Reads Program is as follows:
To expose students to volunteer agencies and social programs in the local community.
To enable students to be involved in hands-on experience outside their normal disciplines.
To provide diverse opportunities that will enhance the student’s educational background and broaden their range of marketable talents.
