Community Service at Western Connecticut State University
Community Service at WCSU
Students that engage themselves in Community Service at WCSU will gain the opportunity to become active members and create a positive outcome for the community. Students will be able to obtain knowledge for certain life skills as well as being able to provide service to those in need. Many students volunteer on their own, but many also get involved through their athletic teams, student organizations, fraternities and sororities, and other organizations. Regardless of your major or interests, there are many opportunities for you to become involved.
Volunteer opportunities can last anywhere from a few hours over the course of a day or weekend for special events to major commitments of time and energy.
Why volunteer? In addition to the immediate reward of knowing you are making a difference in people’s lives, volunteer experience on a resume can give you the edge you need in today’s competitive job market. You will also make contacts in the community.
