Stories of Service

Stories of Service

A Human Services 1101 and English 1101 Learning Community: What events in your life led you to be interested in human services? How do you see yourself as a helper? Just as your unique circumstances and experiences have caused you to be the person you are today, so has service delivery developed over time. In this learning community, we will be exploring the history, role, and characteristics of service. Through writing your stories– narration, description, definition, cause and effect– you will also be exploring who you are in relationship to service and your community.
