Community Service Options

Do you like to give back to the community? Were you involved in a service-oriented club in high school and are looking for ways to get involved at Champlain? One of the ways you can complete your Engaged Citizen requirement for LEAD is by participating in one of the many options LEAD sponsors.

Current Options Include:

  • Cook a meal at the Ronald McDonald House, a home for families with seriously ill children seeking treatment at Vermont Children's Hospital at Fletcher Allen Health Care
  • Volunteer for Committee on Temporary Shelter (COTS), a homeless shelter in Burlington
  • Cook a meal at the Dismas House, a supportive community of former prisoners transitioning from incarceration back into their communities, as well as college students who are in some sort of life transition
  • Prepare and serve a meal for the homeless and at-risk youth at the Spectrum Drop-In Center
  • Volunteer at the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf
  • Cook a meal for ANEW Place, an organization whose mission is to provide a holistic continuum of services for the homeless, centered in love and dignity, that foster growth, cultivate community engagement, and provide tools for lifelong change so that each person may start anew.
