Service can have a broad definition; it may include a year’s commitment with Mennonite Voluntary Service or volunteering once a month at your local Boys and Girls Club.
Besides helping to meet the world’s needs, service also gives you real world experience – what so many employers are looking for. Keep the option of service open throughout college and beyond.
