We at Into the Streets (ITS) try to stress the importance of learning and leadership, as well as service and reflection.  This is why we are presenting you the Into the Streets Challenge: to lead, learn, and serve as best you can.

If you do not see a service opportunity that interests you, find one or approach us here at Campus Ministry to help you find one. Create a leadership position for yourself. Take part in various service opportunities. Grow as an individual through service. Some of the most important lessons we learn are in the community as well as the classroom. Go "into the streets" of your community, and challenge yourself to lead, learn and serve.

ITS Student Coordinator Mission Statement 2016-2017

Our student coordinator team worked together to create this mission statement for the 2016-2017 academic year to describe their role as student leaders on campus:

As ITS student leaders, we will actively motivate, guide, and support our fellow volunteers in a respectful manner. We will learn, recognize, and teach the implications of privilege and systemic oppression. We will strive to break any pre-existing stigma of our surrounding communities for we recognize that our community has so much to offer us. We will commit to serve with compassion, understanding, and humility. We will share our passions and experiences to spread awareness and promote change in regards to social justice. We will uphold the dignity of all creation by recognizing that we are all united in divine love and we will welcome all that come through our doors with open arms.
