Looking for ways to volunteer? Sign up for one of our active projects for one-time or short-term opportunities, or check out our community partners for longer-term opportunities!
Active Service Projects are service events going on that require student volunteers to help make the event possible for the public. Partnering agencies request volunteers and all requests are posted here. The benefits of choosing active (random) projects are that you can get quite a few hours in one day or one weekend as well as you will get a very eclectic volunteer experience, networking with multiple nonprofit professionals.

Community Partners are nonprofit organizations and programs the university is partnered with for students to have volunteer opportunities with during their college experiences. The benefits of choosing to volunteer with a community partner are that you can typically have a set schedule for your volunteer work as well as you really get to know about the organization, get to know the staff and become more invested in their mission.
