Direct Service

Direct Service

Direct service is about hands-on involvement and taking action to address issues of immediate need or concern. Direct service can be one-time only projects, an on-going commitment, working with a group, working alone, working in a set location or moving from place to place. Some organizations are considered “direct service providers,” meaning their mission is to meet people’s immediate needs, such as food, shelter, clothing, or medical care. Direct service encompasses anything from visiting with the elderly in a nursing home to trail maintenance in local parks to packing food. We strongly encourage students to engage in an on-going basis to allow for service work to be most meaningful for you and the community agency.
