If you are unable to attend the speakers due to class or a varsity game, please fill out the speaker absence form by NO LATER than Thursday at noon. PLP needs time to process and excuse your requests. If you have an illness or personal/family emergency that comes up after that time, you may still fill out the speaker absence form.

Community Engagement

This week, we're highlighting a specific opportunity within the Newport News Public Schools service track!

Davis Middle School in Hampton needs our help! They are in the middle of an accreditation process, and need CNU students to help with math, science and language arts in their classrooms. They are on block scheduling, and ideally volunteers would be available for the entire block to observe the lesson and then help the middle schoolers in small groups. If you are interested, please contact for more information.

As always, if you know of an opportunity for service that you would like us to advertise in our Engagement Opportunities document, please fill out the Service Submission Form! See our Fall 2015 Engagement Opportunities for events that PLP Has been told about!

If you volunteer somewhere and are willing to help out your fellow Captains who don't have a vehicle, please check out PLP Service Rideshare! This Facebook page was created a while back, but hasn't been used as much in recent years. We're trying to change that, and make it into a helpful resource for our students. So, whether you're looking for a ride or are willing to help out other CNU students who are interested in your service location, please use this page!
