Independent Volunteer Projects

The IVP process has been established so that when you (WCU students) engage in your own independent service projects you can obtain individual points towards the Lily Community Engagement Award. Once you have submitted your IVP Timesheet, you will receive a follow-up Lily reflection form. You should then complete your reflection at your earliest convenience.

Independent Service Project

 

EXAMPLE 1: While on spring break, Carl Catamount participated in a Habitat for Humanity build in his hometown of Guthrie. He completed two full days of service (six hours each day) and would like to have the opportunity to formally reflect on his experience and to obtain Lily Award points. Carl would simply submit an IVP Timesheet and then complete his reflection within the allotted time frame.

EXAMPLE 2: Every other Friday Pauline Paws serves for two hours with the local “Food Anonymous” program in Waynesville. She does this service work with three of her sorority sisters. Over the fall semester she served seven times for two hours each time (14 hours) and would like to earn points for her Lily Award. Pauline would simply submit an IVP Timesheet and then complete her reflection within the allotted time frame
