About this Group

Group Description
One Person Can Change the World. Be The Change. Our group is dedicated to empowering students interested in becoming change agents both locally and internationally by offering opportunities to engage in group volunteer projects, fundraising activities for a scholarship fund, workshops for leadership development, and developing individualized service projects. In particular, our group is focused on serving underserved communities and addressing health disparities. Together, these activities will enable students to develop their leadership skills and increase awareness of health issues while making a difference in the community. Just like cogs in a machine that transmit force from one part to another, the aim of COG is to equip students with the skills to make a difference in the community and pass that spirit of service onto others to continue a circle of giving.
