Student Leaders for Service is a year-long leadership program that facilitates students’ involvement in both the Portland State and greater Portland communities. Students serve at a community partner site on a weekly basis, supporting the work of the community partner and bringing its mission back to the PSU campus. In addition to serving in a designated volunteer role with their organization, a key component of this role is for the SLS member to serve as a liaison between the community partner site and PSU, developing awareness for the community organization throughout campus and promoting the organization’s volunteer opportunities to PSU students.  

SLS members also support engagement with the Student Community Engagement Center through facilitation of large Days of Service, shorter Serve Your City projects, tabling, and other outreach events on the PSU campus. Student Leaders for Service develop their leadership skills and identities through weekly Friday leadership classes each term and work to incorporate their learning into their service with their community partner site and vice versa throughout the year.
