A Look back at 2015 Service Year and Higher Ed Innovation Competition Winners
2015 was a successful year for the Service Year and Higher Education innovation competition. The competition was designed to connect young adults in school with performing charitable services in order to gain course credits. Through this competition platform, people had the opportunity to send in their project ideas that would help students do a service through something that they may be passionate about so they could take those skills with them to future job positions. According to the website, the 2015 finalists for each category and the ideas they Proposed were: Community Colleges – Miami Dade College Proposed a Changemaker Corps, a peer to peer mentoring and support program that helps youth who have aged out of foster care mentor other foster care system students, with the goal of helping them stay in school, graduate, and develop employ ability skills.
