Lead a Non Sibi Project
Non Sibi Weekend 2018 is April 20-21.
Non Sibi Weekend is a weekend of awareness, action, and reflection for the Phillips Academy community. While meeting genuine needs identified by our community partner organizations, the Community Service Office seeks to provide participants with meaningful opportunities to learn about social issues and ways to work cooperatively with partners to address them. We invite students, faculty, staff, alumni, and parents to join us during this weekend of thoughtful engagement.
Being a project leader is easy!
Do you have an organization that you currently work with? Schedule a date for a group volunteer day and let us know! We will manage the registration and help to promote your service project. If this will be your first time leading a project, our detailed toolkit for volunteers will assist with your planning. A summary of the timeline is also listed below for your reference:
How to plan a project:
- 3-4 Months Prior: Reach out to organizations to schedule a project. Food banks, the Red Cross, Boys and Girls Clubs are often able to host single day projects. You can also use resources like VolunteerMatch.com to find local groups. Projects that allow children to participate are a good option.
- 3 Months Prior: Once you have a project lined up, reach out to Karleigh Antista at the Office of Alumni Engagement. She will need the day, location, and max number of people for the project. The OAE will then add the event to the calendar, send emails to potential participants, and allow people to register for the event. The project leader should reach out to alumni in the area using email and social media.
- 1 Month Prior: Help spread the word on your project! The OAE can assist you track how many people are registered for the event and send email blasts to regional alumni.
- 1 Week Prior: Contact Karleigh Antista in OAE for preliminary list of registrants and updated list 2-3 days before project. Confirm with the host organization that the project details are still correct. Email the list of registered participants to share details of the project and remind them of start time and location.
- Day of the project: Bring any necessary supplies and have a successful project. Don’t forget to take pictures!
- After the project: Send thank you notes to the host organization and project participants. Please send some photos and a summary of the project to Karleigh.
