One Time Service Projects
Community Outreach hosts a variety of on- and off-campus service opportunities intended to provide students an entry point into service. These sorts of service events allow students to become more comfortable with engaging in service and help students to develop as active citizens in their communities. One Time service projects can include either Community Service Days, which are off-campus events, or Special Projects, which are generally annual on-campus events. You can read more about these opportunities below. Or use the navigation tabs above to check out our calendar of events!
What are Special Projects?
Special Projects (SP) are large-scale on-campus events hosted in partnership with community partners, such as Special Olympics, or other campus offices. Some special projects include, Smile Mile, MLK Day of Service, and Give and Go. These events allow for large numbers of participants and may contain a variety of different volunteers tasks. Check out our page for more info.
If you require an accommodation to participate in any Community Outreach events, please contact Cory Sprinkel at firstname.lastname@example.org at least five days prior to the event.
What are Community Service Days?
Community Service Days (CSDs) 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. You can fill out this form to reserve a Community Service Day for your student organization. We encourage you to sign up early for these limited opportunities as they generally fill to capacity early in the semester. If you are looking to get more involved with the Community Service Days program, you can apply to be a Team Leader! Find that application here.
