Community Service Days Fall – November

Community Service Days are one time volunteer placements that occur primarily during the weekends at organizations surrounding the UConn campus. Many student organizations on campus have an expectation that members participate in volunteer community service projects. We encourage you to sign up early for these limited opportunities as they generally fill to capacity early in the semester.

Looking to become more involved? Inquire about our Team Leader positions here.
