Sapphire Leadership Certificate

SAPPHIRE VOLUNTEERISM AND SERVICE LEADERSHIP CERTIFICATE
The Sapphire Certificate is designed to help students involved in volunteering recognize and understand the opportunities, responsibilities, service, and leadership performed by volunteers for the greater good of society. The Sapphire Certificate program provides a conceptual framework for volunteerism, offers basic information on the do's and don'ts of volunteering, offers skill-building training, encourages reflection on the experiences, and introduces a range of theoretical models of volunteerism and leadership.

The Sapphire Certificate will be awarded upon completion of eight workshops, including the four required workshops (Volunteerism, Engagement & Service, Rights and Responsibilities of Volunteers, Volunteer Fair Participation, and Volunteer Involvement Reflection), submission of journal reflections for each workshop, and twenty hours of volunteer work or participation in service learning projects (reported in the journal for Volunteer Involvement Reflection).
