Deciding how to get to and from your placement needs to be a creative process.
"Through out my experience that first year I learned not only how to take college classes and to organize a shopping list, but most importantly I learned how service is a value I must incorporate throughout my life."
"Before this En/Route class, I walked around aimlessly a lot of the time. Finding purpose and passion is a beautiful thing, and just one small opening in your heart allows for a floodgate compassion and movement.”

Finding Your Way...
As you begin the placement process, transportation to and from your community partner must be conscious process that you personally plan. As you consider options for your community partner activities in the coming year, please include your transportation realities, concerns, and opportunities in your discernment process. Various modes of transportation to weigh include the following:
Carpooling: In the past, many students have carpooled to the sites if two or more students volunteered at the same time. Please make your carpooling availability known to your professor if you have a car and are willing to carpool. Alternatively, there may be service-learning students or Community-Based Work Study (CBWS) students in other classes with whom you can carpool.
