Want to transform your good will into positive change? Research has shown that volunteerism not only has a positive impact on happiness, self-esteem and life satisfaction but also increases our sense of control and physical health.

In this 4-session class, you’ll put your good intentions into action! Guided by principles of community engagement, in class sessions will explore the HASS Center’s 6 pathways to guide your outside-class experience in your community. Through discussion, contemplation and reflection exercises you will deepen your understanding of your impact, learn strategies to address personal barriers, and identify your individual talents and interests to benefit your community. The issue of homelessness will be our vehicle to discover your individual path to meaningful community engagement.

Instructors: Christy Matta, MA, is the Wellness on Wheels Manager for the Health Improvement Program and has worked in nonprofits and local government overseeing programs for disadvantaged people those with disabilities for over 20 years.

Joanne Ambras is a BeWell Coach and her vision is to help end homelessness through productive relationships with community and campus organizations, engaging employees, and mentoring high school students who will become the next generation of advocates.
