III. Berkeley Project
The Berkeley Project would like to invite you to be a part of the over 400 students and volunteers working together to improve the Berkeley community. We will have work sites with projects directly impacting (but not limited to) local schools, nearby parks, and community social organizations. Food, directions, and supplies will be provided for you. All you have to do is register and show up.

This semester we are holding the annual Berkeley Project Month, beginning in February, where for three consecutive weekends we hold themed community service events. We are looking for excited volunteers, as well as inspiring leaders to help plan and coordinate these events. There are many ways to get involved with The Berkeley Project, and many available leadership opportunities!

We’re The Berkeley Project, and we aim to permanently change the relationship between the students and residents of Berkeley through hands-on community service. Fully student operated and supported, The Berkeley Project not only provides powerful assistance to the public, but aims to create a lasting culture of service-learning among its participants.

Registration begins Wednesday, February 9, 2011 at 8am PST!

VII. Free Film Screening - Greenlit
Meet Berkeley alum, Environmental Consultant and Producer Lauren Selman (’07) as she screens her film “Greenlit” and discusses how her Performance Studies background has influenced her post-UC career!

Film description:
Movie people are legendarily liberal and left leaning, particularly when it comes to the environment. Greenlit puts their commitment to the test as filmmaker Miranda Bailey follows the production of “The River Why,” as it attempts to keep an environmentally friendly set thanks to the supervision of a “green” consultant. What starts off with great enthusiasm quickly devolves in this insightful and hilarious film.

Friday, February 11, 4pm
Durham Studio Theater
Free admission (seating is limited)
Running time: 50 minutes
Q&A with Lauren Selman to follow
