Social Studies projects are by students in grade 4, 6 and 8. Here is a list of folks who I have commitments to judge. If I missed your name, please let me know.

Students at West Virginia University are encouraged to perform community service whenever possible. Not only does service enable students to give back to their communities, but it also helps them develop skills and gain valuable experience to use later in life. We have several ongoing projects that we always need help with! Students should use iServe to find our foundation and submit a volunteer request.
