Leadership Opportunities

Program Coordinator Fellowship 


Student leadership, provided by Program Coordinators (PC), is central to all CPS programming. Students find voice and the power to find solutions for issues that are important to them -- educating, challenging, and encouraging their peers to continually explore community work, advocacy, and change. Program Coordinators are provided with a $250 monthly stipend for their participation in this fellowship experience. 


Program Coordinators are selected to collaborate with specific agencies and/or projects, allowing for the development of strong partnerships. PCs have the responsibility for providing ongoing student involvement to their partner agency through developing and implementing projects, and supporting volunteers through education and reflection.

Community Partnership:
Community partnerships, the core of Center for Public Service programs, strive to be mutually beneficial - fulfilling both community-identified goals and providing a learning experience for students. Program coordinators serve as liaisons between the Adams County and campus communities to ensure a solid partnership.

Fellowship Plan:
Each program coordinator will propose and implement a self-driven project that connects their personal and academic interests with a community identified need. These projects are purposefully open to encourage creativity and connect to each persons’ interests and may include research, education, policy work, advocacy, designing a curriculum, etc. Projects may connect to curricular requirements, such as a capstone project or other course assignments.

Campus Leadership:
Program Coordinators support student volunteers through education, training, reflection, communication, logistical coordination and the fostering of community/campus partnerships. 

Personal/Professional Development:
Program Coordinators have the opportunity to connect with community, develop professional skills, and find a supportive environment to discover their voice in social change.

Applications for Program Coordinators are due February 12, 2024 for the 2024-2025 academic year. For consideration, submit your resume and cover letter on Handshake.
