Volunteers needed for the Congregations and Community Project
CRCC, with Loyola Marymount University and the Magnolia Place Family Center, will be conducting interviews with congregations in Central Los Angeles and is looking for about 100 volunteers to conduct this research.
The volunteer commitment requires one training session on Sept. 17 from 10:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. with lunch provided and two sessions of survey research in the field on Sept. 18 and 25 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. All sessions will take place at the Magnolia Place Family Center in Los Angeles.
As a volunteer on the Congregations and Communities research team, you will learn how to conduct field research and be part of a research team conducting in-person interviews with members and leaders of local congregations. The data collected from this project will be used to create a database that will be available to the public and benefit congregations, social service groups, and public agencies.
This project is part of USC's response to the President's Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge, a year-long effort to bring students of many faiths together to service their communities.
