National Service Projects
Kappa Gamma Pi has three National Service Projects: improving literacy was chosen as a focus at the 2001 convention in New Orleans. Alleviating world hunger was added as a second project in 2005 at the Cleveland convention. The most recent, earth renewal, was added during the 2009 national convention in New Orleans. Many of the Kappa chapters, as well as Members-at-Large who do not live close to a chapter, are involved with related service projects in their local areas.
One example of a literacy project was sent in from Bailey Craft, a member of Kappa Gamma Pi who works for the Minnesota Literacy Council. She is a classroom assistant in an ELL class at a local learning center. Bailey would like to share this information with other Minnesota Kappas about statewide volunteer opportunities for the Minnesota Literacy Council:
“Enthusiastic individuals are needed to tutor immigrants, refugees and life-long Minnesotans in reading, writing and English. Help students achieve life's necessities like completing job applications, helping their children with homework or understanding medicine labels. Tutor one-to-one, in a small group or as a classroom assistant. Training and ongoing support provided by the Minnesota Literacy Council. For opportunities throughout the Metro area or Greater Minnesota, contact Allison at arunchey@theMLC.org or 651-645-2277, Ext 219”
