Volunteering to improve the quality of life locally, nationally and globally is an invaluable way to develop your skills, take on greater responsibility, meet new people and gain perspective into the diverse nature of our world. With over 160 community partnerships and growing, ESF is continuously collaborating with community organizations. Numerous community engagement opportunities are available in the Syracuse community and beyond.
You may find yourself interested in a number of student organizations that incorporate community service as part of their missions. These include Alpha Phi Omega, Alpha Xi Sigma, Student Environmental Education Coalition (SEEC), Engineers without Borders, LAND|scape, Habitat for Humanity, and many more.
ESF's Community Service and Service-Learning Coordinator also facilitates community service opportunities. Each semester ESF hosts a Campus Day of Service, along with several additional opportunities that are publicized to students via e-mail. ESF students may also contact the Community Service and Service-Learning Office or visit 14 Bray Hall to organize or find a volunteer activity.
After you complete any volunteer work, whether it’s one-time, ongoing or in a group, make sure to document your hours by submitting a Community Service Reporting Form.
