Valparaiso University Student Service Connections
In addition to our volunteers from the community and from many churches in the area, Compass has also welcomed hundreds of amazing Valparaiso University student volunteers over the past decade. A group of Valparaiso University students also used Compass as the focus of a Media Project. Take a moment and watch their outstanding work!
Compass has significantly impacted my life. I just hope that our efforts as volunteers have given as much to the kids as they have given to us. I have been volunteering since my sophomore year and going to the program is always the highlight of my week. This is because of all of the amazing people there that are united for the same great cause. I believe that this program is excellent for the Valparaiso University students to not only advance in their studies, but to also excite the kids about finding a profession and stress the importance of diligent study habits in order to be well-prepared for the future. The most beautiful thing is that, throughout the time that I have been there, I have truly seen this become a reality.
