Hello, service-learning alumni!
If service-learning made an impact on you during your time at Duke, you've come to the right place. We'd love for you to stay involved, and help current students to have similarly meaningful experiences, in any of the following ways:
Stay in touch
If you have recently graduated, you probably know that you will lose your Duke e-mail address after one year. From time to time, we in Duke Service-Learning receive an job posting or announcement that may be of interest to recent grads. We also feature alumni stories here on our website, and occasionally arrange for service-learning alumni to visit campus to speak with current students.
If you would like to continue to hear about opportunities such as these, we invite you to join the service-learning alumni mailing list, using your permanent address. We currently use this list very infrequently (est 2-3 times/year) to circulate relevant opportunities and invitations.
I hope that each of you are finding adventure and meaning in your post-Duke communities, and look forward to staying in touch! We’d love to hear what you’re up to, and please let us know if there is anything we can do to support you.
Tell your story
Inspire current students AND faculty by letting us know where your service-learning experience has taken you, both personally and professionally. Read the stories of other alumni here, then submit your own.
Duke Alums Engage
Each spring, alongside other Duke alums from your area, put the principles of civic engagement and service-learning into practice through a group project tailored to the needs of your community. Immediately after your day of service, you'll have an opportunity to contemplate and evaluate the experience, as a group and individually. Find out more...
Re-connect with LEAPS
Were you a "LEAPer" during your time at Duke? Betsy Alden continues to advise and support LEAPS on a part-time basis. ---and if you'll be in town, we'd love for you to share your story with current students over breakfast or lunch!
DukeConnect is a networking tool for talking with current students and other alumni about jobs and careers, life stages, graduate schools, and more.
