Into the Streets

Serving our Community

Join us for our community service pre-orientation program that introduces new students to their peers and the College, while enabling them to serve and explore their new host community. Into the Streets gives participants the opportunity to fall in love with Chestertown and the Eastern Shore community and form long-lasting relationships with a diverse group of fellow students.

Participants will volunteer at SummerWind Stables, a rescue and sanctuary for abused, injured, homeless, and retired horses; participate in shore clean up and experience nature in our background at the Eastern Neck Wildlife Refuge; assist with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) at Colchester Farm; spend time with furry friends at the Humane Society of Kent County; serve a meal to clients at the Annapolis Lighthouse homeless shelter and transitional living facility; and end their week serving Anne Arundel County residents at the Anne Arundel County Food Bank.

Join us and get a jump-start on your involvement with community service at Washington College. This program is $450 per student, and limited to 12 participants, first come, first served.
