Calling All College Students!
Do you have a passion for the environment and its creatures?
Do you want to help make a difference on your college campus?
If you said “Yes!” then rest assured we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you to do just that!
As ISF College continues to expand and thrive we want to provide all of our ambitious and passionate students with the ability to make a difference on their own college or university campus. If you are a creative, enthusiastic and ardent student who wants to better your campus then we invite and encourage you to start a College Crew in support of ISF.
What is an ISF College Crew?
An ISF College Crew is self-driven and formed on its own initiative by one or more persons at a college or university. As an ISF College Crew your goal is to raise awareness of ISF’s charitable mission, to conduct educational, community oriented projects and events in furtherance of ISF’s mission, and to fundraise for the benefit of ISF if you so choose.
For the past few months we have been hard at work developing and furthering The College Crew Committee. This committee works to expand and assist those interested in starting and becoming an ISF College Crew. Our committee’s goal is to help provide you with the support and guidance needed ensure that your crew is successful. As a Crew you will have the opportunity to develop and execute creative activities, projects, campaigns and presentations on your campus. With your ideas and our assistance we can create an ISF phenomenon across the globe.
How to apply to become a College Crew?
Step 1: Email us at email@example.com stating your interest.
Step 3 : Wait patiently for us to contact you regarding your interest.
After you apply to become a College Crew we will provide you with our newly created ISF College Crews “Welcome Document” via email. In this document you can find all the tools necessary to begin your involvement with us. Also, we’ve already developed some suggested project ideas to get you started!
Are there any College Crews that already exist?
On September 15, 2011 I was approved to start the first ISF College Crew at High Point University in North Carolina (@ISF_HPU). As an ISF College Crew it is our job to brainstorm new ideas and execute projects and fundraisers that will benefit ISF and our campus. Since the beginning of our journey we have developed a Crew full of students who are highly invested, dedicated, and optimistic and work on a variety of projects such as planting a garden on campus, participating in Recyclemania, a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities, and taking part in our campus’ Earth Day festivities. Moreover, one of our ultimate goals as a College Crew is to continue on with the “Green Your Thirst” campaign and ultimately eliminate water bottles on our university’s campus. While our school has now taken steps to providing a few hydration stations around campus our crew believes that we can get rid of water bottles all together; it’s a process but we are confident! With a lot of new ideas to help keep us positively influential on our campus we always strive to educate our peers and faculty to the best of our ability.
Why an ISF College Crew vs. another campus club?
ISF is not your typical environmental organization. Check out some things that we think set us apart:
- Our mission encompasses the issues you care about! ENVIRONMENT, ENERGY, and ANIMALS.
- At the core of our mission is the knowledge that ALL LIFE IS INTERCONNECTED. We respect all life and understand that we are all one interdependent organism.
- We are worldwide! ISF has hundreds of supportive crews across the globe!
- We are all about EMPOWERING YOU to take risks, reach high, learn new skills and become the best you can be.
- We want you to forge your own amazing path in life rather than blindly follow the road laid before you.
- We’ve got social media galore!
- We SUPPORT one another in reaching our personal and organizational goals.
- We are PASSIONATE.
- We are CREATIVE.
- We are TENACIOUS.
We believe that each of you has a unique opportunity to be a catalyst in your community. You have creativity and visionary qualities so powerful in youth, and you have knowledge and experiences that only come with time. We hope that with this powerful combination you can act as a driving force for change.
Thank you all for your support, patience, and desire to join ISF College in our mission to collaborate with college students from around the world.
