Improve your career and leadership skills, become more valuable to an employer — all while you give back, and make an impact in your community.
Our Community Service-Learning (CSL) program integrates volunteerism with academics, so you can build concrete job skills doing hands-on service that applies to your major, and reinforces skills being taught in your particular courses.
Students Feed Our Veterans It’s a yearly tradition: Culinary Arts students serve over 1000 meals to veterans, many of whom are homeless, at Operation Stand Down.
An expertly prepared meal is one way to make sure our veterans feel well fed, body and soul — and it's great hands-on training, too.
Undergraduate Students Ready to become a more ethical leader? Learn to think critically, assess needs, develop resources, build teams, hone communication skills and solve problems as you provide targeted assistance to nonprofits and local schools.
Are you a business student? You might help low-income clients prepare their taxes, or develop training for nonprofits. Culinary students might work at Meals on Wheels or soup kitchens. Graduate Students You’ll have opportunities to contribute your expertise to course-related service learning projects, internships and action research projects with wide-ranging community impact.
Develop your skills by working with a real client and play a pivotal role to support a nonprofit that has limited resources. You might develop a web site, human resources handbook or marketing plan.
