The purpose of this workshop is to raise awareness within the University of Rhode Island community about the service opportunities that are available to them, inspire people to become involved, and highlight the meaning of service. The workshop will include an overview of the module ‘Helping, Fixing, Serving’ as well as a group discussion on the topics presented. The workshop will also include a viewing of the TED talk by volunteer firefighter Mark Bezos and a quick discussion on the three different branches of service (Direct, Indirect, Advocacy), and how every small act makes a difference.
