ACT Community Fellows

The Community Fellows Program is a student leadership position in which undergraduate students serve as a liaison between the university and the ACT Office's local nonprofit community partners. This program seeks to strengthen the connection between ASU and the community by facilitating resource sharing, while allowing students to gain exposure to working in the nonprofit sector.

Community Fellows commit to:

  • Identify opportunities for projects that meet the needs of the community partner.

  • Serve as bridge between on campus student volunteers and the community partner.

  • Recruit for partner service needs and connect them to other on-campus resources. e.g., leigh lane day of service, mlk challenge, farm day of service, donor development and fundraising.

Community Partners benefit by:

  • Gaining an individual dedicated to identifying organizational needs and serving as a support to the organization as well as a liaison to ASU and its resources. 

  • Gaining increased representation at the university, event support, donor development, an individual dedicated to their organization's needs. 

The 2018-2019 Community Fellows served Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture, FARM Cafe, and Hospitality House.
