UTSA Center for Policy Studies sponsors '7 in Seven' spring break service projects
(March 13, 2012) -- The UTSA Center for Policy Studies will sponsor "7 in Seven," a weeklong spring break project, March 12-17, during which students in the UTSA Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA) will turn their passion into action by volunteering.
During the third annual event, NLA students will work with community members to complete seven service projects with seven area nonprofit organizations. Last year students, supporters and alumni logged more than 400 service hours on projects.
Among other projects, the volunteers will work with the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project to help provide voter registration information and register residents to vote.
Working with the House of Teens and Students United for the Dream Act, the students will assist with painting a mural at the House of Neighborly Service to cover up graffiti, while adding art to the landscape. Additionally, students will assist with San Antonio Pets Alive to conduct a dog adoption and pet wash fundraising event.
For more information, call 210-458-2086.
