The partners in Strengths-Based Service are students, faculty and staff, alumni and the community.

Influenced by the fields of Asset-Based Community Development and positive psychology, especially the work with CliftonStrengths, the VRC believes in a model of service focused on strengths and reciprocal relationships.

Strengths-based service is grounded in reciprocal relationship among service partners, based on the premise that each individual has innate gifts and talents, that when shared through service, contribute greatly to the overall wellbeing of our global community.
