Community Partners Volunteer Program

The Volunteer Program serves two purposes: to assist students in finding a placement in the community and to meet the volunteer needs of the local community. There are three types of volunteer opportunities: ongoing, one-time, and group projects. Ongoing opportunities are for individuals who are willing to make a commitment to one agency. One-time event(s), such as festivals, neighborhood cleanups, fund-raisers, etc., are for those who cannot make a regular commitment. Group projects allow students to work together in serving the community.
