Social Change Leadership minor

Molly found her calling by embarking on international ministry and service trips through North Central. Visiting Africa and Columbia helped her develop a passion for social work and for making a difference in the lives of young people. So she switched her major to sociology so she could pursue a career in school counseling or teaching in Teach For America.

To round out her interests in social justice causes, she decided to minor in social change leadership. “This fits with what I want to do,” she says. Molly has also volunteered as an orientation leader, interned at a social service agency working with teens, and during her senior year will organize service trips for the Office of Ministry and Service. And she played on the women’s tennis team for three years. “At North Central, you can really do anything you want,” she says.
