Spotlight on the Bonner Program

Twenty-five students participated in the Bonner Program during the summer of 2010, partnering with community organizations on issues of youth development, community outreach, and capacity building. Training and enrichment opportunities for our Bonner Scholars and Bonner Leaders were planned and facilitated by Bonner Senior Interns, Jevon Hatcher ‘11 and Olivia Lang ‘11 in collaboration with other campus-community presenters. Bonner students continue their summer work with community partners throughout the academic year, and look forward to sustained capacity building initiatives into summer 2011. The following two stories highlight this signature program, coordinated by Jamie Williams ‘01, Assistant Director of Community Service and Service-learning in ACCEL.
