Volunteering!

There are many opportunities within this community to do volunteer work. The links below will give you information about various non-profit community organizations where you can volunteer. 

First things first. Decide what you want to do.

Next, contact agencies and organizations to sign up.  

  • Contact multiple organizations to insure you get a place

  • Some organizations require training prior to volunteer assignments

  • Be realistic;  don't sign up for more hours than you can work

A very important step!

Once you have an agreement with the agency, meet with your advisor and fill out a service learning plan.  You can find it here.

Once you have a volunteer job:

  • Congratulations!!

  • Treat your position as it is is a paid job - show up for all training and shifts;  call in if you can't work

  • Work hard!  This position can provide you a job reference in the future

  • Keep track of your hours and report them to your advisor
