Kenney Community Center Office Goals

1. Students are actively engaged in Schenectady County through volunteerism, with the ability to identify organizations that serve the community and their mission. Students should be able to articulate the social issues facing the community and identify organizations or programs that meet those needs.

2. Students can identify how their passion or skill can be used in a volunteer capacity, and identify a program or organization on or off campus that welcomes their participation.

3. Students learn about and engage in meaningful ways in the Schenectady community. Meet local citizens who are committed to building up the community.

4. Students learn to work with a diverse group of peers and community partners in identifying community issues, and to identify community based organizations that can partner with students in addressing a community or community agency need.

1. Students who volunteer through the Kenney Community Center will establish meaningful relationships with other student volunteers.

2. Students who volunteer through the Kenney Community Center will develop their leadership skills through our diverse array of leadership opportunities.
