Each year over 2000 CSUCI students serve the local and global community through service-learning courses. Service-learning links what is being learned in the classroom to service experiences centered on a community need or issue. Through reflection activities students are given the opportunity to understand what was learned and experienced, and how the community was benefited. Service-learning equips students with the knowledge and experience necessary to transform them into future leaders and socially-conscious citizens. Use your education to make a difference and create change in the community - take a service-learning course!

GET INVOLVED: Student Resources

Due to social distancing and the continued impact of COVID-19, many traditional volunteer opportunities are on hold. But this doesn’t mean volunteerism itself is in decline. Fortunately, our increasingly digital world allows for virtual volunteering opportunities that let you support your cause while staying safe at home. Virtual volunteering opportunities are diverse, wide-ranging, and draw from a broad pool of skills and expertise. Whether you’re turning to remote work due to the pandemic or looking to balance your busy schedule, there is something for everyone—you just need to know where to look and how to get started.

Virtual Volunteer Fair coming! Check back March 2021!~
