Student Leaders


Lindsey Chase
Hello everyone, and thank you for your interest in the Leaders in Service program here at UAlbany! We are working hard this year to connect UA students to community service projects, and are striving for more community outreach than ever before. A little about me: I am the Graduate Assistant for the Leaders in Service program, and help guide the CSAs on campus toward a successful mission of community service. I am a lifetime resident of this area, and have made many meaningful community connections along the way. I have dedicated over 5 years to the nonprofit industry, advocating for housing for people with serious mental illnesses, and have many years of service projects prior to my career. Looking forward to many more!

State:Shavon Brooks
My name is Shavon Brooks and I am a CSA at the University at Albany. I am a sophomore, majoring in criminal justice. I wanted to become a community service assistant because I love helping others in the community and just the people around me as well. At a young age, I was told young people cannot make a difference, but I say otherwise. There are a lot of things that we can do, especially on this campus that a lot may not have thought about. Just knowing that we can help is something spectacular. Since high school I have been involved in community service with my fellow peers, and also in my church for many years it's just a normal daily routine for me. I am excited to lead my own programs and have other students get involved. Just knowing I have a roll now where I can decide specifically what I want to do to help the community- I know the sky is the limit here!
