What is CVFC?
The College Volunteers Facilitators Corps (CVFC) is comprised of college level student volunteers that work under the Michigan Student Leadership umbrella. They teach leadership skills to students across the state of Michigan by facilitating activities at leadership events. These events include:
- Leadership Training Institutes
- Regional CONNECT Conferences
- The Student Leadership State Conference
- Summer Leadership Camp
CVFC members also meet regularly to assist in program/curriculum development, MASC/MAHS Michigan Student Leadership promotion, scholarship fundraising, community service and work alongside the Director of Student Services for site visits and independent leadership training activities. CVFC members know what is takes to be a leader and contribute their time to ensure new generations of Michigan student leaders are molded.
