The College of Idaho is offering four service-learning opportunities this school year through Campus Ministries’ Potter’s Clay program. Campus Ministries will lead experiences in Mexico, Haiti, Ecuador and Caldwell.
“The purpose of service learning is two-fold,” said C of I campus minister Phil Rogers. “It’s an opportunity for students to make a difference in the world, but it’s also a very powerful thing to take part in. We’ve had more than 500 students participate in Potter’s Clay programs in the past 15 years. For many, it has been a life-altering experience.”
