The Oral Health Hygiene Education Project 
The Oral Health Hygiene Education Project is a program working with the clients of the Good Samaritan Clinic and Good Samaritan Dental Clinic. Information and instruction about oral hygiene is rarely available in Spanish; this project addresses this need by providing every client with dental kits and through informative presentations at the clinic. Volunteers from USC, including members of Amigos del Buen Samaritano, are able to accurately explain and demonstrate ideal oral hygiene for adults, children, and infants, as well as answer questions about specific conditions effecting oral hygiene, including periodontal gum disease and diabetes.

Summer Camp Leadership Development
Summer camps can be a crucial developmental experience for children, every camp director and staff member knows this. Summer camps build confidence, introduce kids to other people and cultures, and generally provide opportunities for growth. Something less-recognized, however, is that summer camp can also be a formative experience for counselors. Camp counselors are typically high school or college students; they are beginning to think of themselves not just as students, but as adults and members of a larger society, and a workforce. The goal of this project is to provide a framework that will help cultivate the camp experience for summer camp staff, helping them to consciously develop leadership strategies and communication skills, thereby helping them to achieve in a wider context.

Funding Fosters
Funding Fosters is a year-long initiative that provides the means for off campus students to foster 
abused and neglected animals from Pets, Inc., a local no-kill shelter. Lack of funds frequently prevents 
undergraduates from fostering, and Pets, Inc. is currently suffering from debt and lack of space for 
the every-growing number of animals that get dropped off daily. Funding Fosters will solve these 
issues by covering the cost of apartment pet fees and food. Ten students will have the opportunity to 
train and socialize an animal in order to increase their adoptability while gaining skills in leadership, 
communication, and teamwork.

Propensity
Columbia has a bubbling undercurrent of entrepreneurship occurring just beyond the gates of USC. In order to link the active community and the student body, Propensity aims to connect these two bodies over dinner. To prepare and inform students for a unique job experience, we will hold workshops for students across campus. To participate, students can stop by a workshop or sign up on Jobmate to attend the dinner. Companies can contact propensityconsultingfirm@gmail.com for access to students or to sponsor.
