Every semester, students may apply to earn community service credit by becoming Project MyStory workshop facilitators, panelists, bloggers, and/or vloggers. Our students select themes that are important to them and that they feel are relevant to their peers. They write blog posts, hold small group discussions, and give presentations throughout the semester guided by the themes they have selected. Students are also welcome to share their stories just one time. We feature participants on our blog, in our office, and in advertisements and promotions. Click Here to Apply!
