Where is CCE located?CCE is located in the John J. Hemmingson Center at Gonzaga University. The Hemmingson Center is located at 702 E. DeSmet. We are located in suite 206 and suite 010.
How much time does it take to volunteer with CCE?
It depends. There are a wide range of options. We have found that the more consistent time you put into service, the more meaningful experience you will have. However, we also know that students have many competing priorities. Most of our opportunities, like our youth programs and initiatives, require a weekly commitment for a semester or school year. Zag Volunteer Corps - Saturday of Service requires half day of service on a specific day. Campus Kitchens offers a flexible volunteer schedule as well.
I can't participate in one of CCE's programs, but I still want to commit to service. Are there other opportunities?Absolutely! There are many other on-campus programs, as well as over 100 non-profit agencies that CCE partners with. To get connected to these opportunities, head to our website. This site will allow you to view hundreds of different agencies and opportunities and sign up on the spot. For Gonzaga students and faculty, you can sign up using your GU ID and password.
If I am an undocumented student, can I still volunteer?
Yes. The CCE is committed to supporting students of all ethnicities and nationalities regardless of immigration status.
Undocumented students are welcome to serve in many CCE Programs and at Community Engaged Learning (CEL) sites supported by our Center for Community Engagement.
Please review background check requirements provided at the start of the semester. If you have any questions about the background check requirements for a specific CCE Program or Community Engaged Learning (CEL) site, or if you have questions about whether your immigration status would disqualify you for a particular program or site, we encourage you to contact the CCE. Some sites/organizations may have alternative options that do not require background checks. The CCE can connect with the community partner organization on your behalf, keeping your information confidential, and share their response with you. Student questions regarding background checks and immigration status will be kept confidential by CCE staff.
