Mount Union Students to Teach Classes at Feed My Sheep Ministries of Alliance

May 05, 2010

Mount Union College students enrolled in Dr. Mary Eicholtz's Organizational Communications class will have the opportunity to serve youth and young adults of Alliance by teaching free classes at the Feed My Sheep Ministries in downtown Alliance.

These Mount Union students will teach participants about educational opportunities past high-school; including college, tech school and certifications. They will also educate students on how to find money for higher education, and how to choose a school and career path. They also hope to include campus visits to various colleges, shadowing days with college students, and offer assistance with filing the FAFSA.

'This project is a chance to explore new options and create a plan and future goals,' said Eicholtz. The service learning project is funded by Learn and Serve America and has formed a state-wide consortium of 13 colleges and universities engaged in innovative service learning, fostering urban youth connectednes, and forming supportive communities where knowledge and resources can be shared in urban areas of Ohio.

Classes will begin on Thursday, September 13 at 5 p.m. and will continue to be held on Thursdays. Students of middle and high school age as well as young adults are encouraged to attend.

To register for the classes please call (330) 823-2838 with your name and age, although students are welcome to arrive on the first day without prior registration. Students are also invited to come at 4:30 and enjoy a free meal provided by Feed My Sheep Ministries before the class begins.
