There are a variety of programs sponsored by the Public Service Center that may be of particular interest to you, your agency or your school. While the Volunteer and Community Work Study Programs are probably the most familiar, there are several ways in which we collaborate with community partners.
Civic Leaders Fellowship Program - The Cornell Civic Leaders Fellowship Program invites 2 community leaders involved in economic and community development efforts to join the Cornell community as both learners and teachers for an academic year.
Community Work Study Program - The Community Work Study Program is sponsored by Cornell University to enable Cornell Federal Work Study students to work for nonprofit and governmental agencies in the Ithaca and Tompkins County at a minimal cost to the agency.
K-12 Outreach -K-12 outreach consists of vital programs that impact the intellectual and social well-being of children and youth in the Greater Ithaca area.
Upward Bound - A federally funded program that connects Cornell University with local schools in Groton and Elmira.
The Center also collaborates with the department of University Human Resources, which provides access for the administrators of community agencies to enroll in staff development workshops offered for Cornell administrative and professional staff throughout the year.
