Two RSI program directors and 20 student leaders elected as Vice Presidents of Service for their residence halls develop and lead service opportunities with local community organizations. The Vice Presidents of Service organize service projects ranging from an annual wheelchair basketball tournament that fundraises for recreational and sports programs for youth with disabilities, to greening the local communities of Berkeley and Oakland, to tutoring local high school students. Volunteers have the opportunity to discover new interests, meet new people, and develop new skills, while Vice Presidents of Service develop leadership and program-planning skills. Through RSI, students are able to explore Berkeley and get involved in community service.
Selection for Vice Presidents of Service occurs through the Residential Hall Assembly at the beginning of fall semester each year.
The program has a 1-hour seminar every week and residential hall meetings.
Residential Service Initiative Program Director applications for 2019-2020 are now open. Apply by March 10 at 11:59pm.
