Collaborative Service is one of Barry University’s core commitments and as a result, students are encouraged to engage in volunteering activities. However, students may not realize that volunteering can also be a method to gain experience in their desired field. Students can seek volunteering opportunities within organizations or industries that they are interested in working to gain exposure to the profession. Although many students are focused on obtaining internships, volunteering on a regular basis can provide the student with relevant experience that can be listed on their resume.
The Center for Community Service Initiatives (CCSI) provides programs, resources, and services that facilitate University engagement with communities at the local, regional, national, and global levels.
You may also contact the Career Development Center at 305-899-4010 or stop by the office in Landon 205 to set up an appointment with a career counselor to discuss volunteering opportunities.
