What is CVFC?
The College Volunteers Facilitators Corps (CVFC) is composed 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.
CVFC members meet monthly to assist in program and curriculum development, MASC/MAHS Michigan Student Leadership promotion, scholarship fundraising, and community service. CVFC also works alongside the Director of Student Services for school site visits and independent leadership training activities. CVFC members are leaders that volunteer their time to work with the next generation of leaders in Michigan.
As the College Volunteer Facilitator Corps (CVFC), we foster leadership skills by serving students through facilitation, outreach, and community service. We cultivate a community of diverse thinkers committed to growth, equity, and accountability.
Throughout the year, CVFC members are expected to participate in MASC/MAHS summer leadership camp, and attend monthly meetings at the MASSP office in Lansing, Michigan. At our meetings, we work in committees to keep schools across the state of Michigan engaged. Our current committees are:
- Research and Resource Development
- Community Service
- Social Media
In the beginning of new members’ time on CVFC, they will be able to spend time in each committee in order to see where they feel their strengths are best utilized. During their second semester on CVFC, they will be placed in their official committee. However, there is the option to be on multiple committees at once if their schedule allows for it.
Additionally, CVFC members attend events throughout the year such as:
- Leadership Training Institutes
- Regional CONNECT Conferences
- The Student Leadership State Conference
- Summer Leadership Camp
Apply to Join CVFC!
Applications to join CVFC will be accepted beginning January 6th and will close on March 5th.
The application process includes a written portion, a video submission, an adviser/mentor evaluation form, and a video chat interview.
The written portion of the application consists of 4 prompts that allow the application committee to get to know the applicant better.
Adviser/Mentor Evaluation Form
Applicants will be responsible for having an adviser or mentor fill out an evaluation form for them rather than submitting a letter of recommendation. These forms must be submitted by the adviser or mentor no later than 11:59pm EST March 12, one week after the application is due.
Video Submission Guidelines
- Applicants will upload a video as unlisted on YouTube that is one minute or less in length. Videos are intended to showcase more about your personality or interests. While small edits are allowed, we ask that applicants refrain from any heavy video editing.
- Some possible things to talk about: Your passions, hobbies, involvements, fun facts, what makes you unique, why you are applying to be on CVFC, etc.
- This video does not need to be serious, and it can be silly if you choose to make it be. The purpose of this video is to give us a better sense of who you are, so be yourself!
All applicants will receive an email to sign up for an interview. Interviews will take place via Zoom after the application process closes.
Applicants will be notified of their acceptance in the spring.
