Volunteer Service

Volunteer service is a great way to get involved with your community! This type of service is not linked to a specific course, and can be performed by individuals, groups, student clubs/organizations and even with your family. There are so many ways to become engaged – each person can contribute something back to the community.  Most of the time, you’ll receive something wonderful in return.

Benefits of Volunteer Service:

  • Give back something positive to your community
  • Gain work experience and network with community partners
  • Serve alongside other community members and make new friends
  • Opportunities for awards and scholarships
  • Enhance your resume by adding volunteer experience
  • Learn about your community and yourself

Examples of Volunteer Service:

  • Mentoring youth
  • Tutoring
  • Beach clean-up
  • Serve food at a homeless shelter
  • Participate in a large-scale day of service
  • Plant trees
  • Work on a non-profit organization’s website, Twitter or Facebook pages
  • Sort clothing donations at a shelter
  • The opportunities are endless!
