A new addition to the class this year is group service projects. Each person was broken up in to three groups that chose a nonprofit organization to partner with. The nonprofits picked this year were the Cascades Humane Society, Community Action Agency, and the Dept of Health and Human Services. This provided a hands-on experience for participants to know and understand the needs and innerworkings of a local nonprofit. “We hope these experiences offer confidence to find their passion in support of the community.” said Matt Swartzlander, Director of Events and Legislative Affairs for the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce.
