W&J Volunteer Corps Program
W&J offers students the opportunity to participate in a fellowship program, the W&J Volunteer Corps Program, throughout the academic year. This program is similar to the W&J AmeriCorps Community Fellows Program, but is managed specifically through W&J. W&J Volunteer Corps Program Fellows will commit to completing 300 hours of service over the academic year in order to receive an educational award stipend of $1,175.
Volunteer Corps Fellows will work with a variety of local and regional non-profit agencies, based in education, health and wellness, environmental stewardship, community building, and more. Fellows connect with a primary agency for 50% of their hours, while the other 50% of their hours are distributed to additional partners through numerous opportunities.
