Volunteer Services can prepare you for your role as a citizen and leader. We partner with community-based organizations to provide opportunities for mutually beneficial service and learning.

We’d love to help connect you to a service opportunity in the local community. We can assist you with individual or group volunteer opportunities. We can also assist you with one-time volunteering opportunities or longer-term volunteering opportunities. Whether it's service-learning for a course, for a passion of yours or for a future career interest, we'd be happy to find the right service opportunity for you.
