It links college students with not-for-profit organizations in the area.

"Caroline Sholty, a past Lilly Community Endowment finalist, will be a junior at DePauw University where she majors in psychology," the newspaper reports. "Caroline returned to Logansport this summer to pursue an internship with Reading Railroad. She is also using this opportunity to apply for the GLOVE award. She volunteers about 24 hours a week for Reading Railroad, where her duties include planning and implementing activities for the literacy center program that helps promote literacy in young children. However, she likes the hands-on work with the children the best."

The article adds, "After college she plans on working with families as a therapist and this experience is giving her an opportunity to sharpen those people skills she will need."
