New in 2013, LGBTQI is launching a leadership and service initiative we’re calling Engage. The purpose of Engage is to provide resources to develop globally-minded student leaders in the LGBTQI community. Engage connects students to opportunities that more deeply explore the LGBTQI local and national communities through three avenues:
LGBTQI Life’s Engage Queue is a list of internships at many LGBTQI national organizations. Our goal is to assist students in connecting with these opportunities, and this list is updated regularly with the goal of capturing as many as possible to promote our students’ involvement.
To submit an internship opportunity to the Queue, please contact program coordinator Stephen Loveless (firstname.lastname@example.org).
To view current opportunities offered through national LGBTQI organizations, please visit the Queue.
The Engage Quest trip was created to maximize students’ experience with engagement of national LGBTQI organizations. This year over Vanderbilt’s Spring Break March 2nd-8th LGBTQI Life will be offering a Quest trip to New York City and Washington D.C. Students can apply to attend the trip by filling out an application found by clicking here. This trip will allow students to personally connect to national LGBTQI organizations through site visits and hands on service with these organizations. Students will engage with organizations as well as visit culturally and historically relevant sites to the LGBTQI community.
More locally, our third program under Engage is Community. Community will help match students with local LGBTQI organizations in need of volunteers. LGBTQI Life Staff assist students build an action plan to decide the level of engagement they can commit to this community partner for one semester.
To submit a volunteer opportunity to the Community list, please contact program coordinator Stephen Loveless (email@example.com).
