Program & Service Opportunities
Due to the ways that programs have been re-imagined to align with our current context, our traditional CCE programs have fewer spots for student volunteers. You can check out what’s currently available at the top of our volunteer application. Volunteer applications are now open for the fall semester. If the program(s) you are interested in are full, please fill out this interest form so we can be in touch if new opportunities arise. We’d love to have you involved as soon as it is possible!

If I am Undocumented, am I eligible to volunteer through the CCE and its programs?
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.
