“We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

September 2nd, 2013

50 years since Martin Luther King’s dream speech, and opportunities still abound for us to work together to make the world a better place. The Center for Service-Learning (CSL) at IU East is committed to connecting IU East students with community needs.  There are many options for you to help, some requiring as few as 2 -3 hours for a one-time event and some on a regular basis. They range from crafts with kids to services for Seniors, from building ramps to helping with homework. There is something for everyone; something for YOU! So please take the first step to service and contact the IU East Center for Service-Learning: iueastsl@iue.edu
