COOL THINGS TO DO

 

Exciting internship possibility!

with the

University Chaplain’s Office

 

·         Work with the Multifaith Council, a lively group of undergraduate students from many different religious traditions, planning a one-day fall retreat and a weekend-long spring retreat, along with monthly dinners around religious topics. 

·         Attend bi-weekly meetings of Yale Religious Ministry (the on-campus group of non-student leaders of religious groups on and near campus); these are opportunities to learn more of ministry with young adults (through meetings about developmental issues, spiritual issues, and campus issues) ministry in higher education (through meetings about various aspects of university life), and ministry at Yale (through meetings with representatives from various departments at Yale). 

·         Participate in the planning of the Service of Music, Silence, and Light, a multifaith service designed for those who are grieving.

·         Help with student groups that need additional support and/or create programs of according to their own interest.  In particular, there is ample opportunity to explore (and enhance!) connections among the Christian ministries on campus.

  • Supervision by and work with experienced chaplains and pastors: 
    • Jerry Streets (University Chaplain)
    • Cynthia Terry (Associate University Chaplain)
    • Sam Slie (Associate Pastor)

Great learning opportunities.  Contact Barbara Blodgett, Director of Supervised Ministries, for more information.

 

 

Community Fellowship

 It’s the time of year to begin spreading the word about the 2004 AYA Community Service Summer Fellowship Program.  The Community Service Summer Fellowship Program began in the fall of 1989.   Through this unique program which is sponsored by alumni, close to 400 Yale students have been given the opportunity to spend eight weeks of the summer working in non-profit, community-based organizations in cities across the country and one international site – Hong Kong. We are honored to send out the twelfth group of students this coming summer and expect to approximately 30 Fellowship sites. The program is open to undergraduate and graduate/professional students who are not in their final year of study and who plan to return to Yale the semester following the Fellowship. APPLICATION DEADLINE: THURSDAY, JANUARY 15, 2004 BY 5:30 PM   Visit:  www.aya.yale.edu/cssf   Questions? Call 432-1944

                         

 

 

   Come to "A Day of Discourse on Spirituality in Adolescent Substance Abuse
Treatment and Recovery," Cromwell, CT,  January 13, 2004. This day is sponsored by the New England Network (NEN), the Connecticut Department of Children and Families, the New England Alliance for Addiction Recovery (NEAAR), the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR), the, and the New England Institute of Addictive Studies (NEIAS). Location: Radisson Hotel & Conference Center, Cromwell. For more information, go to --

                                                       Palimpsest wants you!
The deadline approaches for submitting to Palimpsest, Yale's new graduate literary and arts magazine. All poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art, and music are due by Friday, January 16, 2004.
We are interested in work that pushes the disciplinary boundaries of what a literary magazine would typically hold. We strive to reformulate the idea of "the literary magazine" through the cross-fertilization of art, literature, design, theater, music, fashion, and anything else we
can add to the mix. The work published in our magazine will thus appear in a variety of surprising formats, and Palimpsest will accordingly engage in a conversation with itself across a far-sweeping media spectrum. For instance, we envision publishing a poem in printed form
in addition to a video performance of the poet reading her work on our DVD, or a photograph of an architectural model published in tandem with a pop-up rendering of the structure amidst our pages. 
Please see our website, www.yale.edu/palimpsest, for selected works
from the inaugural issue and additional information on how to submit.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Palimpsest is sponsored by the McDougal Center and supported by the
Graduate and Professional Student Senate.

Volunteer Opportunities

 

Grieving Youth in Need

The Community Support Services Team at Riverside Educational Academy in New Haven is  looking for a volunteer to help lead a spirituality group for a small group of high school students there who have encountered some severe losses in the past year.   This would require a 2-4 hour commitment each week.  We do not have enough hours to create a full internship but the group
might be a good experience to complement a placement that does not have a youth component.  I am a licensed psychologist on the Clinical Faculty and could provide supervision on group work with these urban adolescents.  Please contact:

                                                     Mentoring Opportunity
St.
Thomas's Episcopal Day School (on Whitney Ave.) is looking for Divinity School students who are interested in spending one hour per week mentoring elementary-age students.  The mentoring involves helping with homework and giving extra academic help.  Most important, though, is the formation of enriching relationships.  The students
targeted for the mentoring program are in an after-school program from 3-5 pm.  If you would like to work with a child one hour a week (between 3-5 pm M-F), or would like more information, please contact Jennifer Creswell, St. Thomas's seminarian, at
jennifer.creswell@yale.edu or 624-0265
