The De Porres Center for Community Service provides a vast array of opportunities to volunteer and engage in our community. Consider joining us for Make a Difference Day, participating in a social justice discussion, or mentoring at a local school.

To learn about different service opportunities:

  1. Come to our Community Engagement Fair at the beginning of each semester.  Local community agencies will be on-site with information about volunteer and service opportunities. Co-hosted with the Center for Community Service Initiatives
  2. Search our website to learn how you can engage on a number of levels: from volunteering at a one day service event to several hours a week at a local school or community agency.
  3. Search for opportunities on the Center for Community Service Initiatives Community Engagement database
  4. Contact us or stop by our office in Landon Student Union 108
