With 21,436 hours of community service logged during the 2010-11 academic year and 933 Trinity Christian College students involved in community service, the college has once again been named to the President’s Honor Roll for Community Service.
Trinity has been named to the list every year since the inception of the honor roll, which recognizes colleges and universities nationwide that support innovative community service and service-learning programs.
Volunteer hours included time spent at afterschool programs, like those offered to children at Restoration Ministries in Harvey, Roseland Christian Ministries in Chicago, and the Bridge Teen Center in Orland Park.
According to Trinity’s Office of Community Partnerships and Service Learning, the service hours were completed through service-learning classes, spring break service trips and two-week interim courses, service committee and other student-led projects, and the Midwest Campus Compact Citizen-Scholars Fellowship program, through which students complete 300 hours of community service and receive an education award.
