Hello Everyone,
 
I want to make sure that you are receiving the Bonner Weekly and are able to view all features.  I recently sent out a new design on e-stationary.  Here are a few questions on the layout of the new Bonner Weekly.  Please take a few moments to read the questions below and answer by sending a quick reply to this email:  
 
  1. Do you like the new design? 
  2. Can you view the new design on your computer or is the message distorted?
  3. Is the Weekly “reader friendly”?  If not, can you give us a few helpful hints on how to make the Weekly easier to read or view.
 
Thanks for helping us better our e-communications with the Bonner Family!
Kathleen

1) What are YOU doing for Haiti?
 
What are you doing for Haiti?  We want to know.  
Do you have suggestions or ideas to share?
Does your school have a long term commitment?
What about your denomination?  How are they working to help Haiti?
 
Let’s keep each other informed and share ideas.  Please respond by replying to kathleen@bonner.org.
 
 
2) Student Fees
 
We need your input!
 
Do you know of any schools that have had their Bonner projects funded by student fees?   
 
If so, please provide details and reply to kathleen@bonner.org.
_______________________________________________________________________
 
3) Haiti Relief Efforts- Bonner Hours/AmeriCorps Hours 
 
With the rest of the world, we at the Foundation are greatly saddened by the recent earthquake in Haiti.  Saddened, yet propelled to action.  Many programs have jumped at the chance to help out our neighbors in the Caribbean, and we would like to affirm that desire and encourage that effort.  
 
At the same time, because this is an international event, the Corporation for National & Community Service has asked programs not to allow service hours raising funds or other relief efforts for Haiti to count as AmeriCorps hours.  These can, of course, count as Bonner hours.  
 
The Corporation for National and Community Service is discussing lifting this restriction on AmeriCorps service to respond to the disaster in Haiti, and we will keep you posted on the decision that comes from that dialogue. In the meantime, we challenge you to not let this AmeriCorps restriction prevent you from responding to the need.
 
_______________________________________________________________________
 
4) Bonner AmeriCorps 2009-2010 Enrollment Workbooks
 
Please remember that Bonner AmeriCorps 2009-2010 Enrollment Workbooks (i.e. booklets with a green cover) should be used for all your new AmeriCorps enrollees.  Kindly discard any Enrollment Workbooks you may have with a blue cover as those booklets are from the previous grant year and do not contain the most recent version of all updated AmeriCorps guidelines.
 
If you need an additional supply of the 2009-2010 Enrollment Workbooks, please e-mail your request to Janet at jashwood@bonner.org and let her know the number of booklets you need and when you need them.  If you need booklets immediately for a pending AmeriCorps recruitment or orientation session, you may always download and print the latest version of the booklet from the wiki.
 
Also remember to keep a copy for you campus files of all completed workbooks that you submit to the Foundation.
_______________________________________________________________________
 
5) What you shared on MLK Day...
 
Below are just a few highlights from Bonner schools that shared how they celebrated their MLK Day!  
 
It’s not too late to complete the survey and download your pictures and/or videos.  Just click on MLK Survey.  Also, Don’t forget!  You can highlight and submit to the Bonner Video Project:  http://bonnernetwork.pbworks.com/Bonner-Love
 
GREAT WORK EVERYONE!
 
Maryville College
The cities of Maryville and Alcoa, and the community of the college, ban together for a whole week celebration. The Center for Strong Communities sponsored a forum on Latino issues on Thursday night.  The College (also) held a forum on Civil Rights and educational issues.  The community march and celebration featured a speech by Dr. Luther Ivory, who is on the faculty at Rhodes College. Many people attended all events, including many Bonners.  A good time was held by all. We kicked off a CCM/Bonner initiated fund-raising initiative for Partners in Health in Haiti.  
 
Tusculum College
Tusculum College Bonners joined with other campus volunteers to work with the children from the Boys & Girls Club making crafts to later be given to patients in the Children's wing of the hospital.
 
University of Richmond
March and Processional -Students and staff marched to the Community Gathering in the Chapel
 
The university community honored MLK Jr.'s legacy through music, student performances, and the reflections of the keynote speaker, Dr. Oliver Hill Jr., professor and chair of psychology at Virginia State University.
 
Richmond had two other MLK Events: Student Research on Civil Rights, Jan 21 and Racism and Sexual Repression
 
Burlington County College
BCC students, staff, and community members helped to clear a trail at the Pinelands Institute for Natural and Environmental Studies on January 18th.  The trail will be dedicated in the spring to Dr. James Still, an African American self-trained physician in the 1800s.  The 16 volunteers included 12 BCC Bonner Leaders, three non-Bonner students, and one community member.

I’m excited to be working with the Bonner Foundation and am looking forward to getting to know you.

7) Resource Corner ___________________________________
 
Hi all.  As you know, the Bonner Foundation has developed and organized many resources for campus programs online, especially on the Bonner Network Wiki and website.  We've been working on reorganizing the Wiki to make it easier for staff and students to find the resources you need.  Also, we're going to start spotlighting relevant resources for you in the weekly.  Please feel free to suggest things you want highlighted - or even send in a resource (email ahoy@bonner.org)!
 
* Getting your training plan for second semester together?  Check out this page for a listing of trainings by Skill Area, or to find the Sample Bonner Training Calendar.  You can also access a list of the trainings with full descriptions here.
 
*  Need a fresh training?  Now might be the time for a training on reflection, geared at helping students write better CLAs and complete their service reflections.  Or, perhaps you want a reflection workshop for a retreat or mid-year meeting.  Here's a page with those trainings and more:  Reflection Training Modules.  
 
*Getting the final touches on your MLK SERVICE Day together?  The Corporation for National Service offers many helpful resources for making this a day ON, not off, to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and promote the ideals of equality and social justice. Check out this resource, from CNCS's Resource Center.  This resource is part of a new "Best Practice" area of the wiki for students.  Add to it, if you'd like (start a new page and post something on Best Practices page).
 
 
New Resource!  Strategic Meetings with Community Partners
Trying to work with your partners to integrate higher-level placements, research projects, or even pilot a site-based team?  We've developed some new resources for you (as staff or student leaders).  These resources are designed to be simple and straightforward, with the idea that campus programs and community partners can continue to use more advanced resources (such as sample policy briefs, applications, and strategy sessions).  This community partnership "Introductory Toolkit" contains:
 
  1. Bonner Brochure: a great communications and marketing tool for your program and for starting a conversation with a potential community partner. This simple 1-pager introduces the Bonner Program model.
  2. Partnership Workbook: a companion to the brochure, this workbook allows you to walk a potential community partner through the guidelines of the Bonner Program and what it may mean for their organization. This workbook can be reviewed in a meeting setting, and should take about 20-30 minutes to complete.
  3. Semester Plan: if the community organization is interested in the partnership, this document can be left behind for them to complete and return to confirm what they're interested in doing with you, in terms of specific placements & projects.
 
These documents can be found on the wiki's Community Partnerships introduction. Feel free to edit them for your campus program.

BONNER WEEKLY UPDATE 
1/14/10 Edition
 
[1] Seeking Contact Information for Your Bonner Alumni
[2] Seeking Contact Information on Your Bonner Student Leaders
[3] Resource Corner
[4] Input Sought on Developing Online Civic Engagement Course
[5] “Green” Spring Break Intervention in WV
[6] Read. Write. Act. Virtual Learning Community: Application Deadline Extended
 
.............................................................................................................................................
 
[1] Seeking Contact Information for Your Bonner Alumni
We are requesting that each school in the Bonner network gather the contact information for alumni from your Bonner program.  We will be reaching out to the alumni for two specific requests:

(1) to participate in a new Bonner Alumni Survey which is being developed by Cheryl Keen, our Senior Research Fellow who has led our Student Impact Survey (see http://bonnernetwork.pbworks.com/Student-Impact-Survey ).

(2) to invite them to join the Bonner Alumni Network, which includes a Facebook Group, a Bonner Forum Group, and will then be invited to participate in local/regional Bonner Alumni events, serve as a mentor to Bonners who are interested in their professional field or are moving or interning in their geographical area.

 
As we have said in the past, the Bonner Foundation will not solicit donations from Bonner Alumni.  In addition, if your Alumni Office does not feel comfortable sharing their current contact information with us (which has been the case in the past), then we will simply ask that you send the invitation emails or postcards on our behalf. 
 
So, if you are able to gather your Bonner Alumni contact information (including current email addresses), please forward them to Bobby Hackett at rhackett@bonner.org.  We can handle any format, though a spreadsheet document is probably the easiest for us to work with.  And, if you are not allowed to share this contact information with us, please let us know so we can arrange for you to do the Bonner Alumni mailing for us.
 
Thanks!
.............................................................................................................................................
 
[2] Seeking Contact Information on Your Bonner Student Leaders
 
We here at the Bonner Foundation would like to streamline our communication with your student leaders this semester. We are working harder than ever to develop relevant resources for your programs, and it would greatly improve our efficiency and impact in distributing these resources to have the contact information of your student leaders on hand.
 
Please click here to submit the contact information of your Bonner Student Leaders: 2009 - 2010 Bonner Student Leader Contact Information.

Thanks so much for filling this survey out by the deadline of January 11th, 2010 at 12:00pm.

This information should also be up to date on your campus' profile page on the Bonner Network Wiki.  To find a directory of campus profile pages, click here: Bonner Campus Profiles.
.............................................................................................................................................

.............................................................................................................................................
 

[4] Input Sought on Developing Online Civic Engagement Course

Bill Ball (political science faculty member at Stetson University) is developing an online version of his course “Civic Engagement.” This is a CBR course that combines study of contemporary research on what motivates citizens to become involved in their community and local public policy with practical application of the research to CBR projects designed to enhance civic engagement in local communities. The online version will be first offered in the summer of 2010. Since the online course will be nationally available, Bill would like the input from members of the Bonner community on how to best develop the online version to suit the interests of students taking it in this form. If you are interested in giving him some input on customizing the online course, please contact him by e-mail at wball@stetson.edu.

.............................................................................................................................................
 
[5] “Green” Spring Break Intervention in WV

Glenville State College (GSC) in West Virginia, a Bonner Leader school, has “Adopted” Yeager Airport in Charleston, WV.  The “Adoption” of an airport is apparently the biggest in world history---and offers the chance to restore one mountain (not stripped for minerals) in a state that has seen hundreds of mountains denuded for coal.

This is a real opportunity to make a difference in Appalachia and to educate the public on the need for reclamation.  A short  5-minute“draft” DVD documenting the project from demolition through the first interventions is available to be shown to prospective Bonner volunteers.* Ideally,  Bonner students will be added to the final version in what may prove to be a national and international “green” story.

The Airport was federally mandated to extend the runway by 1,000 ft.  Accomplishing that task necessitated moving 3 million cubic yards of a mountainside in clear view of the capitol city and two interstates.  So far, 2,000 trees have been planted to reclaim the site, but another 30,000 will be required to complete the reforestation and to create a handicap-accessible trail around the base of the mountain. Planting opportunities will start March 7 and will continue through May 15th. Two Bonner Schools are already committed to coming.  Oberlin College will be planting on March 30-31-April 1, and Washington and Lee will be planting on April 21, 22, and 23. Other Bonner affiliates are welcome to join them or select their own dates.

 April 22nd is Earth Day.  It looks probable that the “Adoption” will become a highlighted part of Earth Day’s 40th Anniversary.   Also the Governor and First Lady of West Virginia are likely to join us in planting activities—which will be led by GSC Land Resources students.

Students will be staying at the Family Center at the adjoining Coonskin Park.  Cots will be provided and a kitchen and bath facilities are included.   Other positive community partnerships/service opportunities can be arranged in conjunction with the “plant-ins.”   Arrangements can also be made for students interested in seeing mountaintop removal for coal mining—a huge regional and national issue.   For future reference, this multi-year project lasting until at least 2012, will also have fall planting opportunities from October 15 through November 15th.

*To request a DVD, or receive more information contact: Dr. Bob Henry Baber, the Adoption Director, and first Director of the Bonner Scholars Program at Concord College.  An expert on Appalachian culture,  Dr. Baber will be coordinating all volunteer activities and will also be conducting creative writing/reflection activities and arts workshops for participants.  His number is 304-462-4125 @ work, 304-904-2440 (cell), and his email is:bob.baber@glenville.edu.
