IP Partners with TCU on Service Learning Projects
Impossible Possibilities (IP) has teamed up with eight students from Texas Christian University as part of the school’s service learning curriculum that offers students course credit for their work with local nonprofits.
Each of the students has been assigned to a specific project during the fall semester. The first project is the conceptualization of a new “Scholarship Platform” that will link the organization’s former and current scholarship recipients with its existing Advisory Board members, allowing mentorship and employment opportunities.
The second project focuses on program coordination. TCU students recently hosted an interactive student engagement on Friday, Oct. 24, at each of the three elementary schools involved in the organization’s “Maven’s Milestones” Reading Achievement program. In addition, the students are currently organizing various aspects of the organization’s upcoming “Sik’lik” Youth Poetry Slam scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 22.
The final project is the development of the organization’s Year in Review, including content selection, layout and overall design. The annual review is disseminated each January to the organization’s supporters, providing a condensed look at the highlights from the past 12 months.
“Since Impossible Possibilities is a 100% volunteer-based organization, the additional resources the TCU students provide goes a long way in helping us meet our goals for the year,” Director Justin Hernandez said. “We appreciate their efforts and hope they’re taking away as much as they’re putting in.
