Community Agency Resources
We strongly value our relationships with community agencies and do our best to build, maintain and continually strengthen our partnerships. If you are looking for Bradley student volunteers, professional development opportunities or anything else – you’re in the right place. Please let us know how we can help!
We offer workshops and presentations on many topics of leadership development. We can tailor any presentation to your class dynamic, expectations and goals. We can help to ensure your students gain the lesson that you want!
We have two organizations that present our leadership development programs:
- Leaders Instilling Knowledge through Cooperative Service is a capstone program for the experienced student leader who is thinking about leadership and community involvement following graduation. LINCS provides additional experience and education through mentoring, facilitating TEAM Bradley, being a consultant for other student leaders, and conducting informal discussions on leadership. LINCS presents on topics of time management, conflict/confrontation, servant leadership, leadership styles and any other topic you’d like!
- The FISH Philosophy of Leadership is based on the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, Washington. The FISH! Philosophy is based on four key ingredients: Play, Make Their Day, Choose Your Attitude and Be Present. Large companies such as Starbucks®, Best Buy®, OSF Hospitals, and Chrysler/Jeep® utilize this philosophy. The FISH Philosophers offer tailored workshops to community agencies, small businesses, student groups, and classrooms who are looking to learn from and incorporate FISH into their lives.
We offer many different opportunities to connect your agency with Bradley student volunteers. Here’s just a few of what we offer:
- Service on Saturday Member Agency
- Once a month, over 100 students take part in Service on Saturday! Students work in smaller groups at their choice of several sites from 10am-1pm. Based on your agency's project, we'll send the right number of volunteers to complete your goals in 3 hours!
