“During my service, I met some wonderful people that showed me a new perspective and experience. I learned that it doesn't take much effort to make someone smile. I was able to receive valuable advice that helped me in a big way. This volunteering project has definitely been an eye opener for me.” Luis Cepeda, Souls Harbor Volunteer

Servant Leadership: Service Seed Project

Since the Fall of 2010, Crowder College students have participated in a four-hour Service Seed Project as part of College Orientation 101, a one credit-hour course and graduation requirement. The Service Seed Project encompasses the culture of Crowder College and provides opportunities for more positive interaction and the building of relationships between Crowder and the communities in which we are represented by students, staff and faculty.

Our mission at Crowder College is “Building a civil, serving, literate, learning community of responsible citizens.” Our Service Seed Project is a robust example of our students’ becoming active participants in reaching this mission.

“It may not always be fun as this project, but the main thing is to make an impact on your community no matter how big or small.” Garrett Egger, Horses of Hope Volunteer
