"Correspondence program between an inmate and a person on the outside.  Incarceration is one of the most dehumanizing experiences that a person can have and a simple letter of friendship from someone on the outside can act as a strong acknowledgement of the individual's human dignity." (ADROP website)

You can send letters once a week, but replies will come more slowly as stamps and envelopes are expensive for an inmate.  (we are not permitted to supply stamps and envelopes to inmates)  Letters must first be sent to the Office of Service Learning email mary.Aiello@villanova.edu.  Letters to and from the prison will be screened.

#LetsVoteNova is a campus-wide initiative to encourage Villanova students to register to vote and be civically engaged. It is being led by the Student Government Association in collaboration with the Office of Student Involvement and the Office of Government Relations. The larger #LetsVoteNova committee is made up of students, faculty, and staff from across the University dedicated to promoting Villanova’s mission of creating a community that values “the challenge of responsible and productive citizenship.” As student engagement opportunities are largely limited to online formats this semester, volunteers will assist with running the @letsvotenova social media accounts, collaborating with offices and programs on campus, and reaching out to constituencies across campus to get them involved.

Students will create their own time to meet with their LEVEL partner on campus and attend all LEVEL organizational meetings.

What will you do if you serve with LEVEL?  SLC students who choose LEVEL will be partnered with a student who is challenged with physical, emotional, or learning differences.  SLC students will assist their partner with homework, transcribe notes from class or do whatever is needed to help another student achieve their academic potential.  The most important part of this service is to Level the playing field for students of differing abilities.  Through communication and relationship you will find ways to include others who we might otherwise not be included in the social, spiritual, and psychological fabric of our community.
