NGS (the Next Generation of Service) launched our services this past Thursday, October 3rd, 2013 at University of San Diego’s (USD) Change Maker Fest. USD has a campus mission and spirit that inspires young people to make a difference by working on innovative solutions to social problems; it is a great place for NGS to being the pilot of our mentorship program.
In the morning we hosted our “Introduction to Vocation” Workshop, where we explored the relationship between work and life calling and the difficulties of balancing money with finding our passions. We talked about what the world would look like if more young people considered participating in service as part of their career path.
In the afternoon we had a table at the “fest” where we met with students and let them know that we have mentors available to help them uncover their passion and learn more about year long service opportunities.
We are excited and grateful to be working with USD to develop and improve our services.
