Freshman Service Experience Leaders are returning participants ready to take a step forward in working with their DC community. They use passion, skills, and knowledge learned from their time in the program to lead an entirely new group of freshmen. An FSE leader has a strong interest in DC, social issues, and nonprofit organizations and is comfortable being in charge of a group. FSE leaders are usually the first role models the incoming freshmen encounter; thus, our FSE leaders are positive and enthusiastic about American University as a whole, excited to venture into DC for two days of service, and dedicated to orienting a new group of AU students to life at American.
This year leadership pairs will focus on a particular social justice issue within the DC Community and Freshmen will have the opportunity to select the issue they are most interested in.
