Co-facilitators attend a brief orientation, contact the volunteers to organize transportation, pick up the materials for the day from the Honors Program office, get waivers signed by participants, oversee their work during the project, co-lead the reflection exercise after the project, and oversee the return back to Ferris. This counts as a leadership experience as well as service.
