Volunteer Opportunities for Students

Extra-curricular community service is something you do in addition to your academic coursework. You may complete community service through a student organization, fraternity or sorority, or club. You may enjoy helping others and want to volunteer in the local community on your own. Community service can also be a great way to get experience related to a career field you are exploring or to learn more about something totally different.
