Community Partners

Need Volunteers for your Service Opportunity?

The Center for Servant Leadership is always gathering service opportunities for our students to participate in and around McMinn County. If you have a program that needs volunteers to serve or have a great idea for a service project, please contact Kirby Deal, the Community Engagement Coordinator.

Community Partnership with TWC's Servant Leadership Program

Starting with the freshman class of fall 2010, all Tennessee Wesleyan students are required to complete a minimum of 40 hours of service-learning prior to graduation at a minimum of 10 hours per year. We are always seeking partnerships for this program in a variety of capacities and direct involvement. Currently, TWC is connected to more than 50 Community Partners in all aspects of non-profit work, governmental agencies, arts, history and education, among many other areas. The Center for Servant Leadership connects students to any area of service that peaks an interest. We’re always looking for new ways for our students to better meet the needs in our community through their unique talents and interests.

If you're interested in becoming a Community Partner, please complete the Community Partnership Agreement and the Community Partner Risk Assessment. You can also email Kirby and set up a meeting for more details.

Once you've submitted a Service Opportunity Proposal Form, we'll work together to create a mutually agreeable Memorandum of Understanding between our organizations. This will help protect both your agency and Tennessee Wesleyan College regarding any liability issues that may arise with the service experience.

Finally, at the conclusion of a student's service experience with your agency, we ask that you complete an Evaluation of Student Volunteers Form, which provides valuable feedback for our students as they grow into Servant Leaders.
