President's Interfaith Community Service Campus Challenge

In the fall of 2011 the White House launched the President's Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge, an initiative inviting institutions of higher education to commit to a year of interfaith and community service programming on campus and in the community.

Volunteer Spotlight - Wilburn Smith

From an early age, Wilburn Smith was taught the importance of a college degree. His parents advocated education because “they knew it was an important factor in life… college is a must in our family,” said Smith. However, he was not unaware of the problems that existed, and still exist, for many school-aged children.

“I was a very young child when I realized issues surrounding education needed to be addressed,” says Smith.
