Student Development

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 spend time at a local organic farm, the Kent County food pantry, serve a meal to clients at a Annapolis Lighthouse homeless shelter and transitional living facility, participate in a sustainability project with the Echo Hill Outdoor School, and end their week with the furry friends at the Kent County Humane Society.

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