Service is defined as individual activities or group projects that partner with a registered, 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization to address direct community needs. Service activities promote social justice, enhance social welfare, and include opportunities to learn about specific populations or social issues through focused discussion and reflection activities. Service focuses on the immediate needs of individuals and families and addresses painful symptoms of social injustices. Examples of service activities may include volunteering to serve food at a homeless shelter, mentoring youth, or teaching catechism classes to underprivileged students.
Engagement activities are defined as time/energy spent with an organization or community group completing or engaging in activities that help promote democratic involvement, exercise civic agency, and/or contribute to furthering the understanding of social justice by examining structural injustices. Examples of engagement include canvassing for political campaigns, registering people to vote, or participating in a city-wide march for justice.
