Community Service and Volunteerism – Need a Helping Hand?
UCR students are high achievers and pride themselves in learning about the most cutting edge theories and practices in the academic classroom. But UCR students are not only about academics; they also pride themselves in being socially responsible.
The policy or practice of volunteering one's time or talents for charitable, educational, or other worthwhile activities, especially in one's community, is in their heart. Community service and/or volunteerism serve as a core mission of many student organizations on campus. Other students get involved independently.
Are you a non-profit organization looking for volunteers? Or a for-profit company that is also committed to social responsibility? Here are a few ways you may want to consider partnering with UCR students.
- If you need a helping hand for an upcoming event, post your community service position on our free job posting board, Handshake, exclusively for UCR students.
- If you have a longer term project that can be classified as an internship, connect with our Intern Coordinator.
- Familiarize yourself with our Federal Work-Study Program, exclusively for non-profit organizations, as a way to stretch your dollars!
- Consider connecting directly with one of these student organizations to solicit volunteers.
- Contact The WELL to discuss your volunteer projects and find out how student organizations may be available to help promote and plan your events.
- Undergraduate Research in the Community (UGRC)works with students, off-campus organizations, and faculty to develop research projects in the community.
Our students can bring energy, insight and passion to your organization's cause!
