Below is some information on a program at UVM: Community-University
Partnerships and Service-Learning (CUPS).  It looks like a great
opportunity to get students involved in helping your organizations as
they learn and gain experience.

>Hi Bryan,
>Great talking with you.  I'll get some stuff in the mail to you soon
>regarding our office (especially after I complete that community
>agency brochure).  In the mean time, you can feel free to refer
>people to our office.  A few key things that might interest them:
>- The CUPS website ( describes what we do:
>it has a "Community Partner Interest Form" that agencies can fill
>out if they have an idea of a project that might be a good
>partnership with a course; it also has examples of service-learning
>projects in each of the disciplines at UVM and will soon have a
>"Community Partner Guide to Service-Learning."
>- The Community Partner Link website is a collaboration of all
>service-related offices at UVM.  It directs people to contacts for
>community service, service-learning, internships, etc. and helps
>people to understand the differences between them.
>*****ALSO!!!  I have a senior electrical engineering design seminar
>that is going to do service-learning projects; their aim is to use
>their engineering skills to create adaptive devices for community
>members with disabilities.  If you have any agencies who might be
>interested in this, please have them contact me and I can get them
>in touch with the professor (Yuichi Motai).
>Thanks Bryan,  I hope we can continue to work together!
