Psi Chi is an honor society, and your membership is based in
part on your scholastic achievements. While service is not a requirement, it is
an important component in the Psi Chi experience. The science of psychology
revolves around improving the human condition. Providing service to community members is a step in the right direction.
Service projects range from tutoring to organizing food
drives, and everything in between. Your locality, your school culture, and the
causes important to your members should dictate the service projects you plan.
Here are just a few examples of service projects completed
- blood drives
- shelter adoptions
- litter pick-up events
- participation in programs to stop violence
- Habitat for Humanity events
- doing yard work for infirm or elderly neighbors
- completing race events for charities
Service projects can be big, elaborate events or quick,
simple actions. We encourage every chapter to complete at least one service
project as a group each year, but there is certainly no limit to what or how
members serve their communities.
