I realize this is very short notice, however, if any of you service learners are interested in supporting the 10% Challenge and want to get paid for it (five hours/week) through the end of the semester, I would support your application.
Please feel free to make a quick application to Billy Parish below. And please note that there is no guarantee that your application will be selected.
Thank you for your assistance.
