Student Relevant Work and Academic Experiences

We at Nazareth College are thinking about ways for students to gain relevant work and academic experience this summer in spite of the challenging job market and social distancing. I am writing to invite you to share any remote short-term (25 - 50 hours) projects your agency might have that a student could complete between May and July.  This experience will be tied to a 0-credit course for the student and could involve some sort of research or literature review, data compilation and/or analysis, or marketing/communications projects, just to name a few possibilities.

Please see the attached info sheet for details, example project ideas, and the link to the Project-Based Experiences Proposal Form where you can register your project. The Center for Life's Work staff at Nazareth will be letting students know about the available opportunities.

Let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to share this information with others at your agencies. Nazareth College is excited for the opportunity to partner with you on this endeavor. I look forward to hearing from you, and take care!

Answer the call and help your community.  Since the beginning of the pandemic, 211/LIFE LINE, a mission program of Goodwill of the Finger Lakes has connected 9,200+ individuals to essential resources like food and shelter.  As this continues, we are looking for volunteers to help the community stay connected by answering 211 phone calls from the safety of their own home. Volunteers will need their own computer, a strong internet connection, and a quiet place in their home to volunteer and answer calls. Headphones/headsets with a microphone are strongly recommended.
