Community leadership is one of JWU's primary foundations, and community involvement is encouraged by students, faculty and administration. JWU emphasizes your involvement in community service through volunteer activities and service-learning courses, with the goal of developing your skills, training and commitment to be a strong, ethical leader in your career and everyday activities.
Whether you have a wealth of community service experience, enjoyed your Community Service-Learning (CSL) experience and would like to continue, or even if you’ve never volunteered before, you can make a difference by visiting the Feinstein Community Service Center, housed in the John Hazen White School of Arts & Sciences.
Our knowledgeable staff encourage volunteer and in-kind assistance for nonprofits and local schools; and develop civic initiatives to address hunger and homelessness, education and capacity-building issues.
If you like making a difference in people’s lives, the Feinstein Center not only provides CSL opportunities, it also offers support for student-initiated service effort and volunteerism, and implements co-curricular programming for staff and students.
