Senior Service Summer Work:

Senior students need to complete summer work for three agencies this summer (that were assigned to you by Mrs. Stammerman).  Please use the following guidelines and due dates for submitting your work:

Due Dates:

Agency #1 All work due June 14 by 11:00 pm in MobileServe (2.0 hours)

Agency #2 All work due by July 12 by 11:00 pm in MobileServe (2.0 hours)

Agency #3 All work due by August 9 by 11:00 pm in MobileServe (2.0 hours)

For Each Agency seniors will do the following:

Complete a Website Dive of the agency

  • What is their mission
  • Who do they serve
  • Who is the director
  • When did they begin
  • Where are they located
  • What did I like/not like about the agency

*Website Dive will be turned in to your Theology OneNote under the Tab of Service Story on a page called Agency Website Dive.  So, because you do not have your tablet or the Theology Class OneNote that means this will be turned in to the OneNote in August during your first Theology class. However, you should complete in the summer (due dates) and have the work saved and ready to upload to OneNote.

Visit the Agency for a Face to Face Interview:

  • Call and setup a visit to the location
  • Take a picture with person the person you interviewed (upload with hours to MobileServe)
  • Complete the interview and take notes
    • Why is the agency so necessary in our city?
    • What is the most challenging aspect of the organization?
    • If I were to engage with you on a project, what do you see me doing?
    • What is the best part about working with this agency?
    • What hours are you open, so that my project could engage with your agency?

*Interview will be turned in to your Theology OneNote under the Tab of Service Story on a page called Agency Interviews.  So, because you do not have your tablet or the Theology Class OneNote that means this will be turned in to the OneNote in August during your first Theology class. However, you should complete in the summer (due dates) and have the work saved and ready to upload to OneNote.  The person who you interview will be your contact verification for hours in MobileServe and in the photo.
