UC LIVE Community Leadership Program (Remote Summer 2020)

UC LIVE, Ursinus College Leaders in Vocational Exploration, is a mentor-based vocational discernment leadership program that aims to engage selected interns in experiential and service learning that will guide them in the discernment of their own vocational interests, faith, values, and belief systems. Committed students will be putting their academic coursework into action as they seek to understand and address the human needs in our surrounding community.

Examples of Remote Internship Work: online tutoring (range of subjects), college prep for high schoolers, music lessons, making video messages for elderly in nursing homes, organizational capacity-building, etc.

  • Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors of all majors and worldviews
  • Internship will be with a non-profit, service organization, or community group
